Paper Abstract

In this work we studied the optical spectra of dysprosium and ytterbium doped double chloride MePb2Cl5:RE3+ (Me equals K, Rb), and double fluoride LiYF4:RE3+ (RE3+ equals Dy, Yb) crystals. RE3+ doped double chloride and double fluoride crystals have been grown, by using Bridgeman technique. Optical spectra were studied, intensity parameters are determined using Judd-Ofelt method and radiative probabilities and branching ratio were calculated. Yb3+ -Dy3+ energy transfer processes in KPb2Cl5:Dy3+,Yb3+ and LiYF4:Dy3+,Yb3+ were considered.
