Paper Abstract

Triplet absorption and phosphorescence spectra of NaNO2 crystal have been studied in the temperature range of 1.8 approximately 40 K by means of high resolution spectroscopy. Profiles of the absorption and phosphorescence phonon sidebands of the 0 - 0 line show that the triplet excitons are not in thermal equilibrium at 2 K but approach to the equilibrium above approximately 10 K. The intensity and decay time of the phosphorescence were found to decrease drastically in the temperature range of 3 approximately 6 K. The quenching of the phosphorescence is discussed in terms of spin-lattice relaxation caused by two-phonon processes. The relation between the thermalization of excitons and quenching of the phosphorescence are also discussed.
