Luminescence of tungsten centers in zinc selenide



Luminescence spectra of W centers in ZnSe are studied. Radiative d–d transitions are identified by the Tanabe–Sugano diagram of the crystal field theory. It is found that the type of electronic transitions changes with a significant change in spectral characteristics of impurity radiation during the transition fromthe 3d- to 5d-electronic systemof impurity centers in the crystals under study.
