Abstract

Potassium oxalate oxalic acid dihydrate (KHO) single crystals were grown from solvent evaporation technique at room temperature. Crystals were optically characterized using UV–Vis and photoluminescence analysis. The gamma irradiation effects on KHO crystals were also studied optically and the results were analyzed to compare the effect of irradiation on the crystal lattice for different dosage. Structural variations were studied using powder XRD, FTIR and the results were examined to study the defect states created inside the lattice due to irradiation and the effect on the functional vibrations of the host crystal. Surface morphology of the crystal was studied using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Photo conductivity of the synthesized crystals were studied and analyzed to compare the photo response as well as the conductivity of the materials when subjected to irradiation.
