Different up-conversion luminescent spectra of Er^(3+) ions were observed in the oxyfluoride glass-ceramics. The ratio of two fluorides in the original compositions was modified in order to form different nanocrystals. The intensity of up-conversion luminescence increased sharply when the ratio of PbF2 and CdF2 was 40:10. The data of differential thermal analysis and X-ray diffraction were used to explain the optimization fluoride ratio. The intensity of up-conversion luminescence is not only decided by the crystallizability but also mainly related with the stoichiometric proportion of fluoride nanocrystals in the glass-ceramics.
