Investigation of luminescence properties of Ce:Sc:CaF2 crystals

Academic Article


  • We have studied transformations of optical spectra of Ce3+ ions with 4f-5d inter-configurational transitions in CaF2 crystal caused by co-doping with optically inactive Sc3+ transition metal ions. The influence of γ-irradiation of the co-doped crystal on the transformation of Ce3+ optical spectra was also studied. Possible mechanisms for the spectral transformations and the nature of different Ce3+ centers are discussed.
