The Temperature-Dependence of Multiphonon Relaxation of Rare-Earth Ions in Solid-State Hosts.


Rare-earth ions are used in a wide range of emissive devices - ranging from lasers to displays - where high optical efficiency and narrow-linewidth are important. While their radiative properties are important, nonradiative properties are also critical since they can reduce optical efficiency and generate heat. In this paper, theories for multiphonon… (More)
