Abstract

Polarization spectroscopy was used for the first time known to the authors to measure the homogeneous linewidth and excited-state lifetime of an inhomogeneously broadened transition of an absorbing impurity ion in a crystalline host. The observed line shapes agree with those predicted by a density-matrix calculation.
