Abstract

This Letter provides a qualitative proof of concept for purposefully tailoring the emission spectrum of glass by spatially localizing dissimilar dopants to control the degree of energy transfer. More specifically, modified-chemical-vapor-deposition-derived silica preforms were solution doped with either a solution of individually Eu 3 + - or Tb 3 + -doped nanoparticles or a solution of Eu 3 + Tb 3 + -codoped nanoparticles. The preform prepared using the codoped nanoparticles exhibited energy transfer from the Tb 3 + to the Eu 3 + ions, whereas the preform containing individually doped nanoparticles yielded only discretely Tb 3 + or Eu 3 + emissions. The extension of this work to broadband amplifiers and lasers is discussed.
