    The temperature dependent behavior of continuous-wave and time-resolved photoluminescence of Eu-doped GaN in the visible region is measured for both the D-5(0)-->F-7(2) and D-5(0)-->F-7(3) transitions. The radiative decay of these transitions, following pulsed laser excitation of the GaN host, is monitored by a grating spectrometer and photomultiplier tube detector system. In addition to these two radiative energy transfer pathways within Eu3+, the data reveal two nonradiative energy transfer paths between Eu3+ and the host GaN. Decay constants for the relaxation processes are extracted from the data using a numerically solved rate equation model. Although the dominant radiative relaxation processes decayed with a temperature insensitive decay constant of 166 mus, a prominent role for nonradiative transfer between Eu3+ and impurities within the GaN host was deduced above 180 K.
