Unidirectional <100> L-Histidine acetate (LHA) single crystal was grown for the first time and reported. The grown crystal was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies to confirm the crystal structure. The mechanical properties of the grown crystals have been studied using Vickers microhardness tester. The Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) in the sample was confirmed and estimated by Nd: YAG laser employing the Kurtz and Perry powder technique. Thermal stability of the grown
