Abstract


The Yb3+ and Yb3+/Nd3+ co-doped SiO2-Al2O3-Na2CO3-SrF2-CaF2 oxyfluorosilicate glasses have been prepared by high temperature melt-quenching method. The prepared glasses are excited with 808 nm, and the near infrared emission bands are observed. The intensified emission band was centered at 1030 nm (2F5/2 -> 2F7/2) of Yb3+ ions. Stimulated emission cross-section was evaluated for the prominent 2F5/2 -> 2F7/2 transition of Yb3+ ion by using the Mc-Cumber theory. The energy transfer from Nd3+ to Yb3+ ions in co-doped silicate based oxyfluoride glasses are described under the 514 nm excitation wavelength.
