Persistent spectral holes in the absorption lines of inhomogeneously broadened transitions in solids show promise as data elements in a frequency domain optical information storage system.1 In addition, low temperature spectral hole-burning is an important scientific probe of host-guest interactions, dephasing interactions, and site-selective photochemistry.2 Because of this, the hole-burning dynamics of specific host-defect combinations exhibiting photochemical or photophysical hole-burning are of significant interest in both the scientific and technological communities.
