Lifetime measurements in neutral erbium using time-resolved laser spectroscopy

Xu, Huailiang LU ; Jiang, ZK and Svanberg, Sune LU (2003) In Physica Scripta 67(1). p.64-67
Abstract
Natural radiative lifetimes, measured by time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy, are reported for eighteen levels of neutral erbium belonging to the odd-parity 4f(12)6s6p, 4f(11)5d6s(2), 4f(11)5d(2)6s and 4f(11)5d6s7s configurations in the wavenumber range from 26 237 to 42 154 cm(-1). Free erbium atoms were produced in a laser-induced plasma. Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) techniques were employed to produce laser pulses as short as 1 ns for the excitation of short-lived levels, and special care was taken to avoid flight-out-of-view effects on the long lifetime measurements.
