Organic/Inorganic Hybrid Glasses Doped with (Erbium-ions/CdSe) Nanoparticles for Laser Amplifications

  • Kyung Choi (a1)


Hybrid organic/inorganic silicate materials are employed to incorporate rare-earth metal ions for laser amplification applications. Performance of laser amplifiers doped with rare-earth ions significantly relies on glassy hosts. We thus designed and synthesized highly fluorinated glassy hosts doped with biphase of Er3+/CdSe nano-particles. Fluoroalkylene-bridged xerogels containing Er3+-ions show low absorptions at the 1540 nm in this study. The presence of CdSe nano-particles also significantly influences the fluorescence environment of Er3+-ions in the fluorinated glassy matrices.
