Paper Abstract

Intense visible to uv up-conversion emission is observed in Er3+ doped crystals of CsMgCl3, CsMgBr3 and CsCdBr3 when the 4S3/2 (E), 2H11/2 (F) and 4F7/2 (G) states of Er3+ are pumped. The host crystals are of CsNiCl3 type which exhibit a linear chain structure. These hosts incorporate trivalent rare earth ions such as Er3+ to form a M3+-vacancy-M3+ pair center. When both ions in an Er3+-vacancy-Er3+ center are simultaneously excited an efficient energy transfer occurs between Er3+ ions.
