Paper Abstract

In this work optical spectroscopic characterization was performed in a Er-doped phosphate glass matrix PAN (P2O5-Al2O3-Na2CO3). Due to its high phonon energy, only the 1550 nm emission band was observed. Therefore, we have applied the normalized lifetime thermal lens technique in order to determine the luminescence quantum efficiency of this emission. These results were compared with that obtained with the standard Judd-Ofelt calculations. Besides absorption spectra, emission spectra as also obtained. Therefore, the gain coefficient spectra could be evaluated for different population inversions. Finally, figures of merit for the optical amplifiers were estimated and compared with others Er-doped materials.
