Abstract
The information on the variety, nature and structure of the centers formed by the rare earths ions doped in the transparent laser ceramics of garnets and cubic sesquioxides, acquired from high-resolution spectroscopy and emission decay is analyzed. The quantum states (energy levels, transition probabilities) of several doping rare earth ions, their distribution at the available lattice sites, the interactions between ions, and energy transfer processes are also presented. It is inferred that from spectroscopic point of view these materials could substitute the melt-grown single crystals in construction of solid-state lasers and extend considerably their capabilities.
