A new second order Non-linear optical semi organic single crystals of pure and Neodymium(Nd3+) doped Ammonium borodilactate (ABL) has been grown by aqueous solution slow evaporation technique (SET). In the present study, to improve the device characteristics of ABL crystals, metal dopant was incorporated into the pure crystals. The grown crystals are Non- Hygroscopic and good transparent in the visible region, the solubility of the grown crystals was found. The cell parameters were estimated by single crystal X-ray diffraction pattern. UV- Vis-NIR spectrum was recorded to study the optical transparency of the grown crystal. The pure and doped crystals were characterized by thermal studies. The mechanical behavior was studied by Vickers micro hardness test, dielectric and photoconductivity studies were also carried out for the pure and doped ABL crystals.
