Luminescence of divalent lanthanide doped BaBrI single crystal under synchrotron radiation excitations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Luminescence excitation spectra of BaBrI single crystals doped by divalent lanthanide ions are studied using synchrotron radiation excitations from the MAX IV 1.5 GeV storage ring. The energy of the edge and the formation of core cation exciton as well as the energy threshold of the multiplications of electronic excitations is found. It was clearly established the energy transfer from intrinsic luminescence centers to Sm2+ and Eu2+ ions.
