Abstract

Ti-Al co-doped erbium, tellurite glasses have been obtained by melting mixed Er2O3 TiO2 and TeO2 batches in AlO3 crucibles. By crucible dissolution Al2O3 amounts from 11.5 to 18.6 mol% were introduced in the synthesized glasses. Differential thermal analysis of glasses points to a strong dependence of glass transition temperature T-g with the substitution extent of TeO2 by the doping oxides. No crystallization features are observed up to 450 degrees C. The spectral features and decay kinetics of the infrared photolurninescence of erbium demonstrate the possibility to achieve more than 50% of quantum yield of light-emission at Er (3+) concentrations as large as 10(21) cm(-3), with about 2 ms of lifetime, 8 X 10(-21) cm(2) of Stimulated emission cross section, and no saturation at pump power densities higher than 10 kW cm(-2). The study of the kinetics of Er-Er energy transfer suggests to ascribe these features to a particularly homogeneous dispersion of Er 3+ ions in the modified tellurite network. Raman scattering measurements of the spectral distribution of vibrational modes evidence that the introduction of doping oxides leads to an increase of structural disorder without crystallization effects.
