Experimental Spectroscopic Techniques for Transition Metal Ions in Solids

  • G. F. Imbusch


We outline the various experimental techniques which are used in an optical spectroscopic study to extract information about transition metal ions in solids. Some specific examples of the application of these techniques will be discussed.
