Abstract

Codoping with Zr 4 + ions enhances the 1.54 μm emission in Yb / Er : LiNbO 3 crystal by about three times. Optical damage resistant Zr 4 + ion increases the maximum phonon energy of Er : LiNbO 3 host, which is favorable for the nonradiative relaxation from I 11 / 2 4 to I 13 / 2 4 state (Er). The time decay spectra show that the incorporation of Zr 4 + ions leads to a shortening lifetime of I 11 / 2 4 state (Er), increasing the nonradiative relaxation rate of I 11 / 2 4 I 13 / 2 4 (Er) in Yb / Er : LiNbO 3 . The 1.54 μm emission enhancement is important to telecommunication application.
