A combined photoconductivity, absorption, and thermoluminescence study was performed to understand the absence of luminescence from Ce3+ in LaAlO3:Ce3+. It is demonstrated that the absence of luminescence is the result of Ce3+ ionization from the 5d excited states, which are all located in the conduction band. Ce3+ ionization is accompanied by...

Knowledge from lanthanide spectroscopy on wide band gap (6–10?eV) inorganic compounds is used to understand and predict optical and electronic properties of the lanthanides in the III-V semiconductor GaN. For the first time the location of the 4fn ground state energy of each divalent and trivalent lanthanide ion relative to the valence and...

A mechanism of persistent luminescence that was proposed in 1996 for SrAl2O4:Eu2+;Dy3+ has been widely adopted to explain afterglow in many Eu2+ and Dy3+ codoped aluminates and silicates. The mechanism involves the thermally activated release of a hole from Eu2+ in its excited 5d state to the valence band which is subsequently trapped by Dy3+....
