    Divalent europium doped barium orthosilicate is a very important phosphor for the production of light emitting diodes (LEDs), generally associated to the green emission color of micron-sized crystals synthesized by means of solid-state reactions. This work presents the combustion synthesis as an...

    This paper deals with the methodology of laser-induced luminescence at high excitation levels. For a case when a photodetector collects integral (over the volume) luminescence power, a method is proposed for processing the experimentally-measured luminescence power and optical transmittance as...

    We report efficient operation of a longitudinal discharge-excited Sr+ recombination laser operating at λ=430.5 nm in a ''long pulse'' (∼1 μs full width at half-maximum) mode which utilizes Sr++ ions produced in the afterglow by heavy body processes. Optimum operating conditions have...

    For the first time, it is experimentally shown that silver azide pre‐explosion luminescence emerging under weak laser excitation originates and develops locally. As the excitation intensity increases, the mean number of local luminous regions also increases, finally giving rise to...

    The emission from Cr3+ ions at 730 nm is enhanced under the action of the second harmonic radiation of a neodymium laser, while the intensity of emission at 1.54μm from Cr4+ ions in tetrahedral positions remains unchanged. This result casts doubt on the interpretation of absorption bands at...

    The inclusion of Tb3+ ions doped into the storage phosphor BaFBr:Eu2+ results in increased purity of the host material as well as an improvement in the linearity of the photostimulated luminescence (PSL) intensity versus the x-ray irradiation dose. Films produced by pulsed laser deposition (PLD)...

    In this paper we show two-stage process of nanocones formation by Nd:YAG laser radiation. It was deomstrated that in first stage after irradiation by laser p-n junction is formed. Kelvin probe force microscopy was used to measure surface potential of p-n junction after irradiation by laser. In...
