The conclusions of the theory are in reasonable agreement with
experiments (see an earlier review (19). HL of crystals was first
observed on a sample of KCl-N02 in (20). Afterwards, in the
laser-excited RSE of molecular anions all three components - OL,
HL and RRS are clearly demonstrated: on KI-Se2 by L. Rebane and
T. Haldre (21), on KCl-N02 by P. Saari (23,24). Recently full
RSE spectra were obtained and investigated in the case of mixed
(24) and pure molecular crystals (25); particularly, a rich RSE
spectrum in the strong exciton absorption region of anthracene
shows pecularities caused by polariton effects (26).

The HL studies have provided information on different energy
relaxation pathways and the corresponding characteristic times of
picosecond duration (see review papers (19,25». HL data combined
with the studies of homogeneous linewidths enable to get estimates
for the transverse relaxation times to be obtained as well (27).


There is quite a number of general problems about
time-dependent spectra such as mathematical definitions of what is
a time-dependent spectrum, and how to take into account the role
of the spectral apparatus when real physical spectra are concerned
(28-31». Recent success in pico- and subpicosecond pulse
experiments requires a corresponding development of theory, and
recently a number of papers on time-dependent RSE spectra of
luminescence centers in crystals has been published (30-33).
Naturally, time-dependent spectra display very clearly how all
three RSE components - scattered light, HL and OL - come into
being after a short-pulse excitation, how the intensities and
shapes of the lines of luminescence develop with the time of
collecting photons and how they depend on the choice of the
collection time interval. The models used in (30,32,34) and
especially in (35-37) by V. Hizhnyakov and I. Rebane are quite
complete for a proper discussion of the problem (see also (38,39».

I shall review some recent results of the theory mentioned
above. The details of the models under study and the
corresponding formulae may be found in (32,34,35,37). Let us give
here the list of the notations and the main features of the models.

The emission center is characterized by a usual potential
energy diagram with two parabolic curves of different curvatures
representing the local vibration in ground and excited electronic
states (Fig. 1). As we know, it is most important to take into
account the vibrational relaxation, without which we cannot get
the correct picture of RSE. Here it is supposed that the n-th
level of the oscillator decays exponentially with the
characteristic time Til ,n = Til ,lin = (Zr11n)-1 (model 1)

Fig. 1. The diagram of the potential energy curves and the scheme
of the vibronic resonant secondary emissions lines of an emission
center in a crystal. The transitions and lines of ordinary
luminescence (broad lines), hot luminescence (narrow lines), and
scattered light (dashed lines) are shown. Because of the
different frequencies of vibration in the ground and excited
electronic states the luminescence lines corresponding to
different transitions are separated; owing to the excess of the
excitation energy x over the vibronic level the lines of
scattering are shifted from the luminescence ones (35,37).
