The efficient acentric L-ornithine monohydrochloride (LOMHCl), which belongs to the trait of semiorganic category and depicts nonlinear optical characteristics, was grown-up by the process of slow evaporation. The crystal structure and crystallinity of LOMHCl was established by the process of single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction. Single XRD affirm that LOMHCl crystallizes in the system of monoclinic with P21 as acentric space group. The examination of FTIR was done to ascertain the existence of various functional groups in LOMHCl. UV–Vis spectral analysis substantiates its optical quality and the optical constants were also assessed. Photoluminescence process elucidates its emission characteristics and its lifetime is also determined. LOMHCl discloses exquisite resistance to laser radiation having threshold up to 2.69 GW/cm2. The SEM analysis highlights its surface topography. The mechanical stability has been attested by the analysis of microhardness and several mechanical parameters are also estimated. The investigation of dielectric characteristics of LOMHCl was also accomplished. The studies on second and third order nonlinearity were established by the method of Kurtz–Perry and Z-scan which facilitates its utility in the field of nonlinear optics. © 2018 The Physical Society of the Republic of China (Taiwan)
