Luminescence from Solids with High Concentrations of Transition Metal Ions
In going from a dilute to a high concentration of dopant ions, the luminescence spectrum becomes more complicated. In this chapter the changes taking place in going to high concentrations are examined. The fully concentrated material must be analyzed from the exciton viewpoint. The luminescence behaviour of the fully concentrated material is complicated, being dominated by defects and impurities. In many cases no luminescence is emitted by the fully concentrated material.
