The local dopant coordination environment and its effect on the photoluminescent (PL) spectral features of erbium-doped yttrium oxide nanotubes (NTs) were probed by synchrotron-based x-ray diffraction (XRD), x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy (XANES), and extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS). XRD, XANES, and EXAFS data demonstrate that single phase solid solutions of Y (2-x) Erx O3 were formed at 0≤x
