Abstract
The visible luminescence from Pr3+, Dy3+, Nd3+, Sm3+ and co-doped with Ho3+ and Dy3+ ions embedded in Ga0.017Ge0.25As0.083S0.65 glass hosts at room temperature and at T10 K is reported, when pumping with an Ar+-ion laser at lambda=488 nm. Fluorescence emissions at 1 .3 &mgr; was observed for Dy3+ and both at 1.3 and at 1.5 &mgr; for Pr3+ doped glasses with wavelength pumping at 950 nm. The emission bands correlate with the absorption bands characteristic for the electronic transitions of the rare-earth ions. Energy transfer from Ho3+: 5F3 level to Dy3+:4F9/2 level increase the visible emission efficiency at 650 nm in the co-doped glasses. The emission spectra correlate with the absorption spectra of the investigated glasses. The investigated Ga0.017Ge0.25As0.083S0.65 glasses doped with Pr3+ are promising materials for optical fibers amplifiers operating at 1300 and 1500 nm telecommunication windows. The effect of oxygen on the absorption and luminescence spectra of Pr3+-doped Ga-La-S-O (GLS) glasses with a constant cationic ratio Ga/La=O.7/O.3 and varying both oxygen (0.65 and 2.95 wt %) and praseodymium (0. 1 and 1 .0 wt %) content also are presented.
