Abstract

Persistent spectral hole burning (PSHB) has been observed at 110 K in Eu3+ exchanged Na+ β″-alumina crystals. This is the highest burning temperature for PSHB in Eu3+ doped materials. It is found that the long lived holes at high temperature are caused by light-induced local motion of ions surrounding the Eu3+ ions. The results both of hole relaxation and temperature cycling measurements can be well interpreted by a hopping model with a Gaussian distributed barrier height.
