Growth and Electrical Studies on Pure and L- Alanine Mixed Ttcc Single Crystals


Single crystals of pure and L-alanine mixed Tetra thiourea copper chloride(LATTCC)crystals were grown successfully by slow evaporation method at ambient temperature. The electrical properties of the grown crystals have been analysed by studying the variation of dielectric constant and dielectric loss with frequency and temperature. It was found that both the dielectric constant and dielectric loss increases with increase in temperature and decrease with increase in frequency. The a.c conductivity increases with increase in temperature and frequency.
