Abstract

60Bi2O3-20B2O3-10SiO2-10Ga2O3 glasses doped with 1-9 mol% Yb2O3 were prepared and investigated mainly on their violet-green excitation for the typical NIR emission of Yb3+, generally excited in the NIR. Two violet excitation bands at 365 nm and 405 nm are related to Yb2+ and Bi3+. 465 nm excitation band and 480 nm absorption band in the blue-green are assigned to Bi0 metal nanoparticles/grains. Yb-content-dependence of the excitation and absorption means that Bi0 is the reduced product of Bi3+, but greatly competed by the redox reaction of Yb2+↔Yb3+. It is proved that the violet-green excitations result in the NIR emission of Yb3+. On the energy transfer, the virtual level of Yb3+-Yb3+ as well as Bi0 dimers probably plays an important role. An effective and controllable way is suggested to achieve nano-optical applications by Bi0 metal nanoparticles/grains and Yb3+.
