Thermal properties play a vital role particularly for the materials which are used in high power laser irradiation. Photoacoustic technique is very much feasible to findout the thermal transport properties of solid materials. In the present work, nonlinear optical (NLO) single crystal of L-tartaric acid (LTA) was grown by Sankaranarayanan-Ramasamy (SR) method for dimensions of 140 mm in length and 11.5 mm in diameter. The grown LTA crystal has been subjected to UV-Vis-NIR spectral study to analyze the optical transmittance and absorbance characteristics. The thermal characterization studies were performed using photoacoustic spectrometer (PAS). Thermal characterization involves measurement of thermal parameters such as thermal diffusivity, thermal effusivity, thermal conductivity and specific heat capacity. The experimental results of photoacoustic spectrometer show that the thermal diffusivity of LTA is higher than the reported values of a few other well known NLO materials.
