Paper Abstract

P2O5-RO-Yb2O3 phosphate laser glasses were reported in this work. Relationship among the integrated absorption area, fluorescent behaviors of Yb3+ ion and glass components in P2O5-RO-Yb2O3 glasses was examined. Calculated by Fuchtbauer-Ladenberg equation, the stimulated emission cross section of Yb3+ P2O5-RO glass can be larger than 1.5 X 10-20 cm2. The fluorescent lifetime of P2O5-RO-Yb2O3 is usually larger than 1msec. A comprising relationship between stimulated emission cross section and fluorescent lifetime was found in Yb3+ P2O5-RO glass.
