Abstract

We report what is to our knowledge the first observation of erbium fluorescence at the optical communication wavelength of 1.5µm in a perfluorinated medium. Using a Nd:YAG (355-nm) source, we observed fluorescence of the I13/24– I15/24 transition with a peak wavelength of 1.535µm and with a full width at half-maximum of 28 nm. These results can lead to new active devices that use all-fluorinated polymers.
