Green up-conversion and infrared emission spectra of U$^{3+}$ in LaCl$_3$/

Abstract : A strong green emission of U/sup 3+/ ions in LaCl/sub 3/ under red excitation has been observed for the first time. The main anti-Stokes fluorescence arises from the U/sup 3+2/K/sub 15/2/ state (around 550 nm). Theoretical analysis and decaytime measurement of the induced fluorescence show that there are two mechanisms for the up-conversion. The first one consists in excited state absorption and the other one is due to energy transfer between two U/sup 3+/ ions in the /sup 4/F/sub 9/2/ state. In addition a detailed study of infrared emission spectra of LaCl/sub 3/:U/sup 3+/ has been carried out and lifetimes of main fluorescent levels were measured at low temperature. From this study three new experimental levels have been assigned.
