Paper Abstract

In this work the energy transfer between Nd3+ and Yb3+ ions in oxyfluoride silicate glass at room temperature was analyzed. In order to match energy transfer (Nd3+ -> Yb3+), absorption cross-section of glass doped with various Yb3+ ions concentration and emission cross-section of glass doped with Nd3+ were calculated. The percentage efficiency of energy transfer calculated according to the Dextera-Forster model for the glass doped with 0.15Nd3+ : 0.75Yb3+ amounts to 60%. The emission spectrum with 100 nm bandwidth of the Nd3+/Yb3+ co-doped glass samples under excitation at 808 nm was measured.
