Abstract

Ultrabroadband near-IR (NIR) emission has been realized in bismuth-embedded sodalite nanocrystals. Steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence and Raman results suggest that Bi+ active centers contribute to the NIR emission. This study demonstrates that sodalite nanocrystals can serve as excellent hosts for bismuth NIR active centers, thus paving the way for their wide applications in nanophotonics.

PL measurements were carried out with the excitation of a 488 nm line of an Ar + laser. Note that the spectra in (a), (b), and (d) were taken under the same excitation condition and vertical labels represent the PL intensities; Bi-2.13-Y ( Y = 700 , 800, and 875) samples do not show PL.

The excitation source for the time-resolved PL measurements was a 488 nm light (pulse width 5 ns , repetition frequency 20 Hz ) from an optical param etric oscillator pumped by the third harmonic of a Nd : YAG laser.
