Rare earth-doped barium gallo-germanate glasses and their near-infrared luminescence properties.

Near-infrared luminescence properties of Nd3+ and Ho3+ ions in barium gallo-germanate glasses have been reported. Several spectroscopic parameters for Nd3+ and Ho3+ ions have been determined from the Judd-Ofelt analysis and absorption/luminescence measurements. Quite large luminescence lifetime, quantum efficiency and stimulated emission cross-section have… CONTINUE READING
