Paper Abstract

We present in this work the optical properties of Er3+ ions in KY3F10 single crystals. After crystal growth and Xray diffraction analysis, optical absorption and emission spectra are recorded at low temperature (8 K). The Stark sublevel diagram is determined. The fluorescence decays of the main emitting levels have been measured and compared with those obtained in literature for other known laser materials.
