Abstract

Broadband near-infrared luminescence covering 900 to 1600 nm has been observed in Bi-doped oxyfluoride silicate glasses. The partial substitution of fluoride for oxide in Bi-doped silicate glasses leads to an increase of the intensity and lifetime of the near-infrared luminescence and blue-shift of the near-infrared emission peaks. Both Bi-doped silicate and oxyfluoride silicate glasses show visible luminescence with blue, green, orange and red emission bands when excited by ultra-violet light. Careful investigation on the luminescence properties indicates that the change of near-infrared luminescence is related to optical basicity, phonon energy of the glass matrix and crystal field around Bi active centers. These results offer a valuable way to control the luminescence properties of Bi-doped materials and may find some applications in fiber amplifier and fiber laser.

(d) NIR PL decay curves for MO and MF glasses (excitation wavelength is 680 nm and the corresponding monitoring wavelength is 1160 and 1080 nm, respectively). The correlation coefficients for the fits by bi-expotential decay equation (MO: I = 0.35016e-t/286.8 + 0.60650e-t/21.8, MF: I = 0.55442e-t/643.4 + 0.43560e-t/133.0) are 0.996 for MO and 0.999 for MF. The inset is excitation wavelength dependent PL lifetime for MO and MF glasses (the excitation wavelength are 470, 560, 640, 680, 800 and 880 nm, the corresponding monitoring wavelength are as the peak position in Fig. 1(b)).
