Abstract

This Letter reports intense emission at 2.7 μm and broadband emission at 2.0 μm from Er 3 + / Tm 3 + / Ho 3 + -doped fluorophosphate glass. The fluorescence characteristics and energy transfer upon excitation of a conventional 980 nm laser diode are investigated. Based on the fluorescence spectra and lifetime measurement, the effect of Tm 3 + and Ho 3 + ions on intense 2.7 μm emission in fluorophosphate glass is demonstrated. It is also found that the effective bandwidth of 2.0 μm emission due to Tm 3 + and Ho 3 + ions can reach as high as 196 nm . These results indicate that the advantageous spectroscopic characteristics of Er 3 + / Tm 3 + / Ho 3 + triply doped fluorophosphate glass together with the outstanding thermal properties may become an attractive host for the mid-IR solid state lasers.
