Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (Impact Factor: 2.38). 01/2011; 112(1):78-84. DOI: 10.1016/j.jqsrt.2010.08.017

ABSTRACT Dy3+-doped alkali lead tellurofluoroborate (RLTB) glasses (R=Li, Na and K) were prepared by melt quenching technique. Judd–Ofelt theory has been used to evaluate the three intensity parameters Ω2, Ω4 and Ω6 from the experimental oscillator strengths. The photoluminescence spectra obtained by the excitation wavelength of 385nm show four emission bands at 454, 483, 575 and 665nm corresponding to the 4I15/2→6H15/2 and 4F9/2→6HJ/2 (J=15/2, 13/2 and 11/2) transitions, respectively. The laser characteristic parameters like fullwidth at half maxima (FWHM), stimulated emission cross-sections (σe), optical gain parameters (σe×τexp) and gain bandwidth parameters (σe×FWHM) were determined. From the visible emission spectra, yellow to blue (Y/B) intensity ratios and chromaticity coordinates were also estimated. The lifetimes of 4F9/2 metastable state were also measured and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Dy3+-doped lead phosphate (PbPKANDy: P2O5+K2O+Al2O3+PbO+Na2O+Dy2O3) glasses were prepared by melt quenching technique and their optical properties have been studied. Judd-Ofelt parameters have been evaluated for 1.0 mol% Dy2O3-doped lead phosphate glass and inturn derived radiative properties for excited luminescent levels of Dy3+ ions. The yellow-to-blue emission intensity ratios and CIE chromaticity coordinates were calculated which have been used to evaluate white light emission as a function of the activator (Dy3+) ion concentration. The observed non-exponential decay nature and quenching of lifetime for higher Dy3+ ion concentration (≥1.0 mol%) have been attributed due to energy transfer of dipole–dipole type between excited and unexcited Dy3+ ions. The PbPKANDy glasses exhibit better luminescence properties which are suitable for generation of white light.

    ABSTRACT: Multi-channel visible and near-infrared (NIR) emission transitions originating from 4G5/2 emitting state of Sm3+ in cadmium-aluminum-silicate (CAS) glasses with maximum-phonon-energy of ∼980 cm−1 have been investigated. Based on the measured absorption spectrum, the Judd–Ofelt parameters Ωt (t=2, 4, 6) are derived to be 2.87×10−20, 3.34×10−20 and 1.86×10−20 cm2, respectively. From the evaluated Judd–Ofelt parameters, the radiative parameters such as spontaneous emission probabilities (Arad), branching ratios (β), and radiative lifetime (τrad) are obtained from the 4G5/2 excited level to different lower energy levels. The efficient visible and NIR transition emissions have been observed in the Sm3+ doped CAS glasses, and the maximum stimulated emission cross-sections (σe-max) corresponding to emission peaks are calculated and demonstrated to lay in the same order of magnitude. The quantum efficiency of 4G5/2 level of Sm3+ has been derived to be 60%. Investigations on multi-channel radiative transition emissions originated from 4G5/2 level of Sm3+ in CAS glasses expose its potential applications in tunable laser, medical light source and NIR optoelectronic devices.

    ABSTRACT: Lead containing calcium zinc sodium fluoroborate (LCZSFB) glasses doped with different concentrations of trivalent dysprosium ions were prepared and investigated by the XRD, FTIR, optical absorption, photoluminescence and decay curve analysis. The experimentally determined oscillator strengths have been determined by measuring the areas under the absorption peaks and the Judd-Ofelt (J-O) intensity parameters were calculated using the least squares fit method. From the evaluated J-O parameters the radiative transition probability rates, radiative lifetimes and branching ratios were calculated for 4F9/2 excited level. Room temperature photoluminescence spectra for different concentrations of Dy3+-doped LCZSFB glasses were obtained by exciting the glass samples at 386 nm. The intensity of Dy3+ emission spectra increases with increasing concentration of 0.1, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 mol% and beyond 1.0 mol% the concentration quenching is observed. The measuring branching ratios are reasonably high for transitions 4F9/2-->6H15/2 and 6H13/2, suggesting that the emission at 484 and 576 nm, respectively, can give rise to lasing action in the visible region. From the visible emission spectra, yellow-blue (Y/B) intensity ratios and chromaticity color coordinates were also estimated. The lifetimes of 4F9/2 metastable state for the samples with different concentrations were also measured and discussed.
