Title: Optical studies of dynamical processes in disordered materials

Our research continues to focus on the study of the structure and the dynamic behavior of insulating solids which can be activated optically. We have been particularly interested in the physical processes which produce relaxation and energy transfer in the optical excited states. Our studies have been based principally on optical laser spectroscopic techniques which reveal a more detailed view of the materials of interest and which will ultimately lead to the development of more efficient optoelectronic materials. 13 refs.
