Crystals that display non linear optical properties have a wide variety of potential applications inthe field of laser optics and communication. Succinic-Picrate crystals doped with copper sulphate that are yielded by mixing the equi molar proportions of succinic acid and picric acid by slow evaporation method. The grown crystals are harvested and subjected to Spectral as well as X-ray diffraction studies.FTIR Spectroscopy confirm the functional groups at the appropriate absorption frequencies for the sample under examination.Optical properties of the grown crystals were studied using Arithmetic UV spectrometer. Optical transmittance and absorption were recorded for the crystals of thickness approximately around 2mm. The crystals have wide transparency between 200 to 1100nm. The recorded transmission is almost above 95% throughout the region. This is the most desirable property of the crystals used for nonlinear optical application. XRD studies revealedthat the well-defined peaks at specific 2thetavalues show high crystallinity of the grown crystals. The values of hkl, relative intensity and 2 theta values for the reflection peaks of the powder XRD pattern are given.
