Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

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.
