Spectroscopy and Optical Applications of Rare-Earth- and Transition-Metal-Doped Materials

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 128)

Abstract

Materials doped with transition-metal and rare-earth ions have been investigated intensively from the viewpoint of applications to various optical devices. In this chapter, optical properties of paramagnetic lanthanide-and transition-metaldoped materials, which are essential for the discussion of optical applications, are described along with the mechanisms of spectral line broadening, energy transfer, and so on. Some of the issues relevant to the following topics are also discussed; (1) solid-state laser materials, (2) long-lasting phosphorescence and photostimulable phosphors, and (3) room-temperature persistent spectral hole-burning.

Keywords

Cross Relaxation Energy Level Scheme Crystalline Field Photostimulable Phosphor Narrow Spectral Width 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
