Paper Abstract

We encapsulated rare earth ions such as europium and neodymium with organic ligands to incorporate them into polymer matrices. Their spectroscopic properties in polymer hosts and organic solutions were studied. Infrared emission has been observed from a neodymium-doped perdeuterated core graded index polymer optical fiber.
