Paper Abstract

Experimental data presents a pump intensity dependence of the 4F3/2Nd3+ level emission in various hosts; these effects were assigned to the up-conversion processes. A new formalism that takes into account both up- and down-conversion processes and the statistical distribution of acceptors around donor in the case of direct processes is presented. This involves a time dependent of transfer function and two interaction types: dipolar and superexchange. The profile of excitation beam is considered in order to compare theoretical calculations with experimental data. Calculations concerning quantum efficiency as a function on the ratio between up- and down- conversion rates are presented.
