Abstract

Single-crystal K 2 Zn Cl 4 doped with Co 2 + has been grown successfully by use of the Czochralski technique. The absorption spectrum of the crystal was measured. The most intense line, centered at 650 nm , was associated with the transition A 2 4 T 1 P 4 , and a novel and important result that corporate transition (co-transition) between A 2 4 T 1 F 4 and A 2 4 T 2 4 of Co 2 + in the region of 1300 2400 nm was found and discussed. The mechanism that caused the phenomenon was explained by energy-level splitting theory. In the tetrahedral approximation, using the quantum and Tanaba–Sugano theories, Racah parameter B and crystal field parameter 10Dq were calculated. The optical energy gap, deduced to be 4.82 eV , was lower than that of pure K 2 Zn Cl 4 .
