Abstract

We have investigated the spectroscopic properties of a crystalline sapphire fiber unintentionally doped with Cr3+. We find that tensile stress produces blue shifts of the R lines and changes in their radiative lifetimes and integrated intensities that can be correlated to stress-induced changes of the crystal-field parameters.

  11. Hydrostatic pressure, of course, affects the three-dimensional cell volume. As a result, the hydrostatic pressure-induced shift rate of 0.757 cm−1/kbar can be shown to be approximated by the sum of the stress-induced coefficients (0.28, 0.26, and 0.215 cm−1/kbar; see Ref. 9) along the a, b, and c axes, respectively.
