The transition probabilities of Pr, Sm and Nd ions in sol-gel glasses are increased by addition of Al3+ as a result of lowering of the site symmetry in which the ion is situated. The addition of Al has even a greater effect on luminescent efficiencies than on absorption strengths. The effect is a result of a decrease of aggregation of the ions in presence of Al circumventing the cross-relaxation process. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V, All rights reserved.
