Abstract

We report the first measurements, to our knowledge, of the modification of spontaneous emission rates of Eu3+ ions in the visible region owing to an absorbing medium. Precise levels of the absorption coefficient are introduced by codoping with different amounts of Nd3+. We use a binary glass system PbO-B2O3 as the host, the compositional variation of which leads to a change in the real part of the refractive index. Measured lifetimes are found to follow the real cavity model, and the data are analyzed by the model proposed by Scheel et al. [Phys. Rev. A 60, 4094 (1999)]. We give estimates of the parameter that is related to the radius of the cavity around Eu3+.
