The structure of the absorption spectra of Ce3+, Pr3+, and Tb3+ ions in the vicinity of 4f-5d transitions has been investigated. At low temperatures the absorption spectra exhibit a weakly pronounced fine structure, in contrast to narrow-line spectra in crystals of Ca, Sr, and Ba fluorides. The spectra of Ce3+, Pr3+, and Tb3+ ions in CdF2 can be considered as the absorption spectra of these ions in alkali-earth fluorides, broadened by 60–75 cm−1. The broadening is related to the autoionization of electron from the local 5d(eg) level to the energy-degenerate states of the conduction band of CdF2 crystal.
