Abstract

We have investigated the spectroscopic properties of a crystalline sapphire fiber unintentionally doped with Cr3+. We find that tensile stress produces blue shifts of the R lines and changes in their radiative lifetimes and integrated intensities that can be correlated to stress-induced changes of the crystal-field parameters.
