The transient optical absorption and luminescence of LiB3O5 (LBO) nonlinear crystals in the visible and UV spectral ranges were studied. Measurements made using absorption optical spectroscopy with ns-scale time resolution revealed that the transient optical absorption (TOA) in LBO originates from optical transitions in hole centers and that the kinetics of optical density relaxation are rate-limited by interdefect nonradiative tunneling recombination involving these hole centers and the Li0 electronic centers, which represent neutral lithium atoms. At 290 K, the Li0 centers can migrate in a thermally stimulated, one-dimensional manner, a process which is not accompanied by carrier delocalization into the conduction or valence band. It is shown that the pulsed LBO cathodoluminescence kinetics is rate-limited by a recombination process involving two competing valence-band-mediated hole centers and shallow B2+ electronic centers. The radiative recombination accounts for the characteristic σ-polarized LBO luminescence in the 4.0-eV region.
