Short-wavelength emission in neodymium and holmium doped fluorozirconate fibers

Mariusz Klimczak

Abstract

The main goal of this dissertation is study and complex analysis of phenomena and factors shaping visible and near-UV (UV-violet) emission properties of fluorozirconate ZBLAN-type bulk and optical fiber glasses, activated with either trivalent neodymium or holmium ions. General purpose of presented work is within research for new optically active dielectric materials for applications in optoelectronics. The thesis of this dissertation is that multi-photon excitation schemes for ZBLAN optical fibers activated with either Nd3+ or Ho3+ ions, allow obtaining efficiency parameters comparable with classic, single-photon excited systems, and that low-phonon energy, multicomponent glass hosts (specifically ZBLAN) may be considered an attractive alternative to silica and crystalline matrices in the area of short-wavelength emission generation.
