A wideband near-IR (NIR) luminescence centered at 1080 nm was found in a Rb Pb 2 Cl 5 : Bi single crystal grown by the Bridgman technique. Absorption, luminescence, and excitation of luminescence spectra were investigated at room and cryogenic temperatures. The luminescence was proposed to be due to the P 1 3 P 0 3 transition in Bi + ion.
