Condensed-Matter Spectroscopy


The vacuum ultraviolet emission spectra of alkaline-earth fluoride (CaF2, SrF2, BaF2) crystals with rare earth impurity ions (Nd, Gd, Er, Tm, Ho) have been investigated. The main luminescence bands are described well by the transitions from the lowest excited 5d state to different 4f levels of rare earth ions.
