Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Absorption spectra of lanthanide ions in perfluorinated (PF) plastic solution were measured, and Judd-Ofelt parameters (Ω2, Ω4, Ω6) were determined by the absorption measurements. Fluorescence spectrum of Nd3+ in PF plastic solution from 900 nm to 1350 nm, pumped at 580 nm, were measured for the first time.
