The role of breathers in the anomalous decay of luminescence

Lawrence S. Schulman

Luminescence in certain doped alkali halide crystals does not decay exponentially. The explanation (for the examples we study) lies in the formation of non-linear excitations called breathers which appear to live on two-dimensional KAM tori. Quantization of the breathers is accomplished using a stroboscopic method.
