Nonlinear optical (NLO) materials, with high frequency conversion efficiency have the most applications in the areas such as optical communication and optical storage devices. Amino acids family crystals possess high NLO efficiency because of their non- centrosymmetric space group and chiral carbon atom. L-Serine is an organic amino acid and exists in zwitterionic form. Organic amino acids L-serine was grown by slow evaporation method. The grown crystals have been subjected to single and powder X-ray diffraction, FTIR, UV-visible and Non linear optical studies. The L-Serine was harvested after a period of 20 days. The crystal structure of L-Serine C3H7N03 has been determined by X-ray diffraction methods. It crystallizes in orthorhombic crystal system with space group P212121 with unit-cell dimensions of a=8.599, b=9.348, c=5.618. FTIR spectrum was recorded and functional groups were analyzed. The linear and non-linear optical properties of the crystal were confirmed by UV-Vis analysis and powder SHG test.
