Abstract

The emission spectra of the tripositive lanthanide ion Eu3+ have often been employed to probe its environment in the solid state, and the intensity ratio of magnetic dipole (5D07F1) and forced electric dipole (5D07F2) transitions has been used to estimate the "degree of asymmetry" of a crystal site. From the site-selective, low temperature emission spectra of Eu3+ doped into a glass, a new empirical relation has been found between the width of spectral features and the relative intensity of the 5D07F 0 zero phonon line. In order to explain the observations from experiments with excitation at different wavelengths, a generic quantitative relation has been developed from basic theory and validated from our experimental results. This work gives a deeper insight and understanding of the spectral characteristics of Eu3+ electronic spectra in the visible region. © 2010 the Owner Societies.
