Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The structure of the zero-phonon line at 1.53 μm in e-irradiated Tl+-doped KCl has been investigated as a function of temperature. The particular color center which originates the discrete phonon structure has not been identified, but it is coupled to a localized mode h {combining short solidus overlay}ω = 3.9 meV and possesses a rather small Huang-Rhys factor, S=1.7. Moreover the narrow absorption structure and the band underneath are essentially stable over a period of almost one year. © 1992.
