Cover Story (view full-size image): Targeted design of novel, high-power laser materials requires a detailed understanding of how the atomic environment of rare earth ions in their host material influences luminescence properties. In this work, atomistic simulations are used for the elucidation of the atomic medium-range structure of rare earth ions in aluminosilicate glasses. The structure models obtained are expected to provide a crucial step towards a greater understanding of the fundamental relations between the atomic structure and luminescence properties of rare earth-doped aluminosilicate glasses.
