Paper Abstract

The InF3-based fluoride glasses doped with Tm3+ and Tm3+-Tb3+ ions were studied by x-ray diffusion, differential scanning calorimetry and optical spectroscopy. The thermal stability and luminescence quenching of Tm+3 ions in InF3-glass have been investigated as a function of activator concentration. In the limit of low activator concentration, values of stability parameter and quantum efficiency of excited states are very high, suggestion their practical application of those glasses in optical devices.
