Paper Abstract

In a Y2SiO5:Pr3+ crystal characterized by two non-equivalent Pr3+ optical centers, the interaction mechanisms between Pr3+ ions as well as between Pr3+ ions and a crystal lattice have been studied. It has been shown that along with the electron-phonon interaction, the interaction between Pr3+ ions and two-level systems made an additional contribution to the homogeneous linewidth of the 3H43P0 optical transition. Two different mechanisms of the Pr3+ interionic coupling have been found. The first mechanism is associated with a dipole-dipole interaction between non-equivalent Pr3+ optical centers, while the other one is governed by a cooperative cross relaxation of the excitation energy among the same type Pr3+ optical centers.
