Abstract

Experimental spectroscopic results related to Nd3+-doped BaY2F8, are presented that include vacuum-ultraviolet ground-state absorption and excitation spectra as well as polarized emission and excited-state absorption spectra recorded in the near-ultraviolet spectral range at room and low temperatures. Calculations were performed to determine the positions of the 4f25d sublevels and the intensities and polarizations of the 4f3↔4f25d optical transitions of the Nd3+ ions in the C2 symmetry sites of the biaxial host crystal. The simulated spectra agree well with the experimental spectra; in particular, the model that was used successfully reproduced the differences between the polarized spectra on one hand and between the spectra recorded at low and room temperatures on the other hand.
