Paper Abstract

New and original monocrystalline samples having a continuous longitudinal concentration gradient are used to study dynamical processes of resonant transitions in rare earth doped laser crystals like Y2O3 sesquioxide and YAG garnet. This fast and simple method allows to measure the radiative lifetime, the influence of radiation trapping, impurity quenching and RE pairs or clusters on the excited-state lifetime as a functon of the dopant concentration. Examples in Yb3+, Er3+ and Ho3+ rare earth ions are presented.
