Extract

In previous work with the Raman microprobe, we have examined the fluorescence emissions of rareearth (RE) bearing glasses to study the phenomena of structural resonances in the spectra of glass microspheres and the energy upconversion processes for RE ions in such glasses that give rise to anti- Stokes fluorescence emission. Presently, we are revisiting these same fluorescent glasses to study their laser excited emissions as potential radiometric sources for the calibration of Raman spectral intensities. Many of the rare earth ions produce interesting fluorescence spectra on laser excitation depending on the type of ordered or disordered (solid) host matrix. These fluorescence spectra, depending on RE concentration and quenching effects, can be intense and may consist of either narrow-band (or line) emissions or broad-band spectra covering a wide spectral range. These spectra, acquired at laser wavelengths from the ultraviolet (UV) to the near-infrared (NIR), provide a practical means for the calibration of Raman instrumentation for both Raman frequency and intensity.
