Paper Abstract

A new kind of Erbium-doped heavy fluoride glass Er:ZBLALiP was elaborated, and microspheres were fabricated with this fluoride glass. Thermal properties and spectroscopic properties of Er:ZBLALiP excited at 805 nm were investigated. Based on this thermalization effects between upper levels of green fluorescence in Er:ZBLALiP, we proposed an optical temperature sensing using micrometer-sized spherical cavity. The sphere temperature is scaled by the ratio of green emission intensities at 522 and 547 nm. A wide dynamic temperature ranging from 100 K to 850 K can be utilized by this type of point temperature sensor.
