Abstract:

Absorption and emission spectra of terbium-doped yttrium orthoaluminate have been recorded at 77 and 4.2K. Most of the theoretically allowed crystal field levels from 0-37000cm were identified. A free ion calculation has been carried out. The electrostatic, spin-orbit, and configuration interaction parameters that minimize the mean square deviation between the experimental centers of gravity and the calculated free ion energies were determined.
