dc.description.abstractNanostructured amorphous Al oxide (a-Al₂O₃) thin films doped with Tm³+ were synthesized by alternate pulsed laser deposition. The Tm³+ ions have been deposited in layers with in-depth separation ranging from 0.75 to 6nm . The films show two broad emission bands originated from the Tm³+ ³H₄ → ³F₄ and ³F₄ → ³H₆ transitions. Their intensity increases at a similar rate and the lifetimes are not modified as the layer separation decreases down to 1.5nm , suggesting that there is no concentration quenching. At the critical value of 1.5nm the onset of Tm³+ – Tm³+ energy transfer is evidenced by a sharp decrease of the emission intensity and lifetime. Below this critical value, the rate at which the intensity increases for the ³F₄ → ³H₆ transition is much higher than that for the ³H₄ → ³F₄ transition, evidencing quenching of the ³H₄ → ³F₄ transition through a cross-relaxation mechanism. The control of the Tm³+ ions in the nanometer scale allows evidencing the onset of energy transfer processes among ions and offers a route to optimize compact photonic gain integrated devices.es_ES
