Resumo

Eu3+, Er3+-doped and Er3+/Yb3+-codoped niobium alkali germanate glasses, in the compositional host system GeO2-Nb2O5-K2O were synthesized by the conventional melt-quenching technique. Glass-ceramics were manufactured by controlled heat treatment of the precursor glasses. Homogeneous glasses and nanocrystalline glass-ceramics were investigated by DSC, XRD, TEM and spectroscopic analysis. K2Nb14O36 crystals are formed in the prepared glass-ceramics. This crystalline phase has low phonon energy as compared to the precursor glass and a variety of chemical sites for rare-earth ions. In glass-ceramics, the rare-earth ions occupy higher symmetry sites of the K2Nb14O36 nanocrystals resulting in inhomogeneous broadband emissions. Judd-Ofelt parameters were obtained for the Eu3+- and Er3+-doped samples. Glass-ceramics heat-treated for 20h exhibited the highest photoluminescence quantum efficiency. The increased quantum efficiency is due to the decrease of nonradiative decay processes, that depopulate the excited levels, as well as the decrease in hydroxyl content and overall phonon energy. However, luminescence quenching is verified for samples with longer crystallization times, which emphasizes the importance of optimized heat treatment parameters. The gain coefficient and upcon-version data were obtained and corroborate the potential application of these materials as photonic devices, such as visible and NIR laser and optical amplifiers. (AU)
