A systematic spectroscopic study of Dy3+doped LiNbO3is presented. The energy position of the Stark levels and their symmetry character is given for most of the multiplets. Luminescence of this system has been investigated in the visible and infrared. The only emitting state in this region is the metastable4F9/2multiplet whose life time is temperature independent and with a value of 186 μs. Evidence about Dy3+multicentres is also discussed.
