Non-Radiative decay

A rare-earth ion in an upper excitation state (reached by absorption of a high energy pump photon) can relax to a slightly lower state with the release of a small amount of vibrational energy, a phonon, before decaying fully to the ground state (with the emission of a lower energy signal photon).  This process is known as non-radiative decay.
