Paper Abstract

White light was produced exploiting additive synthesis of red, green, and blue(RGB) fluorescence generated through frequency upconversion in fluorogermanate glass samples co-doped with Ho3+, Tm3+ and Yb3+, and excited by a single source of near-infrared radiation. The blue(475 nm), green(540 nm), and red(650 nm), upconversion luminescence signals were, respectively, assigned to thulium(1G4 - 3H6), and holmium(5S2;5F4) → 5I8, 5F55I8) ions, both excited via successive energy-transfers from ytterbium ions. The Tm3+, Ho3+, and Yb3+ concentrations in the glass host were adjusted yielding the emission of a wide color gamut in the visible spectrum, and the production of white light using a single infrared source of excitation at 975 nm.
