Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (Impact Factor: 2.65). 01/2011; 112(1):78-84. DOI: 10.1016/j.jqsrt.2010.08.017


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: 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.

    ABSTRACT: Lead telluroborate (PTBDy) glasses doped with different Dy3+ ion concentrations were prepared by melt quenching technique and investigated through optical absorption, fluorescence and decay measurements. The Judd-Ofelt intensity parameters (Omega(lambda)) are obtained by a least square fit analysis. The small root mean square deviation of +/- 0.34 x 10(-6) shows a good fit between the experimental and calculated oscillator strengths. The radiative properties of the F-4(9/2) -> H-6(13/2) emission transition of PTBDy10 glass are determined and compared to the other reported glasses. The variation of decay time of the F-4(9/2) emission state is attributed to the interaction among the excited Dy3+ ions at higher concentration. The PTBDy10 glass is found to be a suitable candidate for solid state laser materials to produce intense yellow (576 nm) luminescence through the F-4(9/2) -> H-6(13/2) transition.

    ABSTRACT: Different concentrations of dysprosium doped strontium lithium bismuth borate (SLBiB) glasses were synthesized by the conventional melt quenching method and characterized through X-ray diffraction, Raman, absorption and visible luminescence spectroscopies. These Dy3+ doped glasses are studied for their utility for white light emitting diodes. X-ray diffraction studies revealed amorphous nature of the studied glass matrices. Coexistence of trigonal BO3 and tetrahedral BO4 units was evidenced by Raman spectroscopy. From the absorption spectra, Judd–Ofelt (J–O) intensity parameters, Ωλ (λ=2, 4 and 6), have been calculated. The hypersensitivity of the transition, 6H15/2→6F11/2 of Dy3+ has been discussed based on the magnitude of Ω2 parameter. Using J–O intensity parameters, several radiative properties such as spontaneous transition probabilities (AR), radiative branching ratios (βR) and radiative lifetimes (τR) have been determined. From the emission spectra, a strong blue emission that corresponds to the transition, 4F9/2→6H15/2, was observed and it also shows combination of blue, yellow and red emission bands for these glasses. In addition to that, white light emission region have been observed from these studies.
