Paper Abstract

Unlike mean-field approach that was used in previous statistical model, in this paper we use a new approximation to excitation back transfer accounting for variance in population of the first excited level. Based on the results, we find that for concentrations of erbium ions more than critical, upconversion rate calculations deviate substantially from the calculations based on simplified model.
