Abstract

This paper reports on the growth of pure and Nd3+, Pr 3+, Yb3+, and Dy3+ doped rubidium lead chloride (RbPb2Cl5) crystals by the atmosphere-controlled micro-pulling-down method. Structural and composition measurements are reported, further completed by the absorption, radio- and photoluminescence spectra and decay measurements on the prepared single crystals. Potential of these materials and preparation method for the application in the infrared solid state laser field are discussed.
