Abstract

The polarized optical absorption of Er3+-doped LiNbO3 has been obtained and analyzed within the framework of the Judd-Ofelt theory including polarization dependences. These results are compared with those obtained under unpolarized conditions. Fluorescence lifetimes for different Er3+ concentrations have also been measured in the temperature range 10–300 K.
