Abstract

Intense four- and five-photon ultraviolet upconversion processes through sensitization of Tm 3 + ions in transparent SiO 2 Al 2 O 3 NaF YF 3 glass ceramics triply doped with Tm 3 + Yb 3 + Nd 3 + under 796 nm excitation were investigated. Judd–Ofelt analyses evidenced the incorporation of rare-earth ions into the precipitated β - YF 3 nanocrystals. In contrast with the triply doped one, no ultraviolet upconversion luminescence was observed in the Tm 3 + Nd 3 + codoped glass ceramic, indicating that Yb 3 + acts as bridging ions to enhance the energy transfer efficiency between Nd 3 + and Tm 3 + . Based on the pumping power dependence of luminescence, upconversion mechanisms were proposed.
