Abstract

Using the up-converted hot luminescence technique, the measurements performed in Ni2+:MgO are reported in order to obtain information on the phonon modes and electronic bottlenecks associated with the nonradiative relaxation of the impurity Ni2+ ions. This technique is useful in obtaining information regarding the phonon modes involved in the radiationless relaxation, on electronic bottlenecks, and short-lived electronic states of impurity metal ions in dielectric crystals.
