Abstract

A simple rate equation model is used to determine the macroscopic upconversion parameter of a heavily erbium-doped oxyfluoride transparent glass ceramic. The fraction of initially excited ions in the metastable state among erbium ions partitioned in the nanocrystallite phase is found and the decay of the S 3 2 4 level is used to determine the upconversion parameter. The macroscopic energy-transfer upconversion parameter is found to be approximately 4 × 10 18 cm 3 s 1 , in good agreement with other erbium-doped fluoride materials.
