Luminescence emission of Tm in YAG codoped with Cr under selective (into E Cr levels or F Tm levels) and nonselective (into T Cr ) excitation is dominated by three new centers. Based on structural and spectral characteristics, these centers are associated with the three possible perturbations produced by Cr3+ ions at the nearest neighbour Tm ions. A selective energy transfer within these Cr -Tm pairs is observed.
