AbstractThe optical properties of Nd3+ ions in six different compositions of glasses based on GeO2, PbO, and Bi2O3 have been investigated by using steady-state and time-resolved laser spectroscopy. Judd-Ofelt parameters were derived from the absorption spectra and used to calculate the 4F3/2→4H11/2 stimulated emission cross section and the 4F3/2 radiative lifetime. Site-selective spectroscopy and time resolved fluorescence line narrowing experiments were performed in the 4F3/2→4I9/2,4I 11/2 transitions. For all samples studied a line narrowing of the 4F3/2→4I11/2 emission has been observed when exciting at the long wave side of the 4I9/2→4F3/2 transition. The lifetimes of the 4F3/2 state do not show a monotonic variation with the excitation wavelength indicating large site-to-site variations in the local crystal field. Spectral migration of excitation among the Nd3+ ions has been studied from the time evolution of the 4F3/2→4I9/2 spectra under resonant excitation. The results can be interpreted in terms of a dipole-dipole energy transfer mechanism. Visible upconversion has been observed in these glasses under infrared laser excitation. ©2000 The American Physical Society.
