Abstract

An overlook of absorption and luminescence characteristics of Nd 3+, Er3+ and Tm3+ centers in LiLuF4 single crystal is provided. Single crystal doped with the mentioned RE ions were prepared by micro-pulling-down technique in the form of few cm long rods with the diameter of about 2 mm. Excitation and emission spectra and fast decay kinetics in VUV spectral region were measured at SUPERLUMI station at synchrotron DESY, Hamburg and characterization was further completed in UV-visible region at conventional spectrophotometers. Observed absorption and emission peaks are ascribed to the 5d-4f and 4f-4f optical transitions in the doped rare earth ions. Concentration dependence of the decay kinetics is discussed.
