Europium doped BaMgF4, an EPR and optical investigation

|Abstract||Eu2+ was introduced into pure and oxygen codoped BaMgF4 single crystals. A detailed EPR study of this ion (S=7/2) was realized on both types of systems. The result is that only one spectrum was observed involving a strong crystal field. The associated site symmetry of the impurity is Cs. It occupies very closely a Barium lattice site as was established by correlating the EPR results with those of a refined X-ray structure analysis on a Ba0.8Eu0.2MgF4 single crystal realized in our laboratory. The oxygen codoped crystals exhibited this same Eu2+ EPR spectrum (the only one). Optical emission and excitation experiments were performed between 13 000 and 53 000 cm−1. The results due to the Eu2+ impurity are given and discussed qualitatively within the 4f7left right double arrow4f65d1 scheme.|
