Abstract:

The absorption and emission spectra of erbium doped yttrium orthoaluminate YAlO3Er3 have been recorded at 77K and 4.2K. A reduction of the data to tables of wavelengths and line strengths has been accomplished for experiments performed at 4.2K. Tables of observed line wavelengths are included. The wavelength ranges covered were 2175A - 9500A in absorption and 4500A - 9500A in fluorescence. A table of energy levels for Er3 in the YAlO3 host lattice is offered. A free ion Hamiltonian parameter fit was performed by computer and the results are also listed. A brief outline of the theory of complex spectra is also included. Author
