Abstract:

It is shown that at high pressures, results of absorption measurements are inconsistent with R-line fluorescence data. The observed constancy of R1-R2 splitting under hydrostatic conditions is supported by crystal field analysis. The present findings suggest the need for absorption measurements in ruby crystals under better defined stress conditions. Keywords Fluorescence Absorption Crystal field analysis Ruby High pressure.
