Epub 2009 Oct 23.This paper reports on the preparation and systematic analysis of energy transfer mechanisms in Nd(3+)-Yb(3+)-Er(3+) co-doped new series of barium-alumino-metaphosphate glasses. The time resolved fluorescence of Nd(3+) in triply doped Ba-Al-metaphosphate glasses have revealed that, Yb(3+) ions could function as quite efficient bridge for an energy transfer between Nd(3+) and Er(3+) ions. As a result, a fourfold emission enhancement at 1. Read More
