Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

This paper reports the growth and optical properties of Cr3+-doped LaSc3(BO3)(4) (Cr3+ :LSB). The Cr3+ -doped LaSc3(BO3)(4) crystal with dimension null set 25 x 35 mm(3) was obtained by Czochralski method. The absorption and photoluminescence spectra have been measured. The dominant features of absorption spectrum are two broadbands at ca. 400-700 nm. A broad emission band extending from 740 to 1280 nm with a peak at near 960 nm was observed. The lifetime of Cr3+ :LSB was 15 mus. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
