Paper Abstract

The optical properties of four Tm3+ chelates, specifically (beta) -diketone tris chelates of thulium, in a poly(methyl methacrylate) matrix are presented. Samples under investigation were the Tm3+ complexes formed using thulium chloride (TmCl3 (DOT) 6H2O) with thenoyltrifluoroacetylacetone (TTFA), 1,1,1-trifluoro-2,4- pentanedione (TFD), 1-phenyl-1,3-butanedione (PBD), and 1,3- diphenyl-1,3-propanedione (DBM) ligands. These materials are interesting from the point of view of potential applications for optical hole-burning frequency and time-domain storage and processing. Optical absorption, steady state and time-resolved photoluminescence, and spectral hole-burning at the transition between 3H6(1) and 3H4(1) crystal-field levels were studied at temperatures between 1.4 and 300 K.
