Abstract

This paper reports on the optical properties of Cr3+-doped LaSc3(BO3)(4) (Cr3+:LSB). Based on measurement of the absorption spectrum the crystal field strength Dq, the Racah parameters B and C were calculated. The photoluminescence spectrum of Cr3+:LSB via T-4(2) -->(4)A(2) transition is a broadband emission from 740 to 1280 nm at room temperature. The measurements of absorption and photoluminescence spectra show that in Cr3+:LSB the Cr3+ ions occupy weak crystal field sites.
