Ratnakaram, YC and Reddy, Viswanadha A and Chakradhar, Sreekanth RP (2002) Electronic absorption spectra and energy gap studies of Er3+ ions in different chlorophosphate glasses. In: Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 58 (8). pp. 1809-1822.
Spectroscopic properties of Er3+ ions in different chlorophosphate glasses 50P2O5-30Na2HPO4-19.8RCl (R=Li, Na, K, Ca and Pb) are studied. The direct and indirect optical band gaps (Eopt) and the various spectroscopic parameters (E1, E2, E3, and \xi 4f and \alpha ) are reported. The oscillator strengths of the transitions in the absorption spectrum are parameterized in terms of three Judd-Ofelt intensity parameters (\Omega 2, \Omega 4 and \Omega 6). These intensity parameters are used to predict the transition probabilities (A), radiative lifetimes (\tau R), branching ratios (\beta) and integrated cross sections (\Sigma) for stimulated emission. Attention has been paid to the trend of the intensity parameters over hypersensitive transitions and optical band gaps. The lifetimes and branching ratios of certain transitions are compared with other glass matrices.
