Abstract of Publication No. 275
We have doped the 3d1 ions CrO3-4 and
MnO2-4 into various host lattices. At 15 K broad-band
emission in the NIR is observed from all the samples. Both the position and
general appearance of the low-temperature luminescence vary considerably. The
Cs2SO4: Mn6+ luminescence spectrum exhibits a
particularly well-resolved fine structure which is analyzed quantitatively.
