Paper Abstract

The bright white upconversion emission ( tri-colour UC) is generated in Er/Tm/Yb tri -doped oxy-fluoride lithium tungsten tellurite (TWLOF)glass ceramics containing crystalline phase LiYbF4 under the excitation of 980nm laser diode. The most appropriate combination of rare-earth ions (2mol% YbF3 1mol% ErF3 and 1mol%TmF3 )of glass ceramic sample has been determined to tune the primary colour (RGB and generate white light emission. By varying the pump power, intense and weak blue (487nm, 437nm), green (525nm and 545nm) and red (662nm) emission are simultaneously observed at room temperature. The dependence of upconversion emission intensity suggest that a theephoton process is responsible for the blue emission of Tm3+ ions and red emission due to both Tm3+ and Er3+ ions , while green emission originated from two photon processes in Er3+ ions. Also tri colour upconvesion and energy transfer in this glass ceramics sample were studied under 808nm laser diode excitation. The Upconversion mechanisms and Tm3+ ions plays role of both emitter and activator (transfer energy to Er) were discussed.
