Paper Abstract

In single crystals of AgCl, BaCl2, PbCl2, SrCl2, KPb2Cl5 with an unextended phonon spectrum (E less than 200 cm-1), doped by Dy, the luminescence spectrum was found to cover a wide range from visible region to IR (4.3 mkm for KPb2Cl5), including well pronounced 1.31 mkm band, which is important for using in telecommunication amplifiers. The Rare Earth impurity was shown to enter the host matrice as RE3+ in chlorides, the only type of impurity centers being formed in the case of rhombic MeCl2 crystals with Me equals Ba, P, S.
