Abstract

Sm3+-doped cadmium-aluminum-silicate glasses (CdO-Al 2O3-SiO2) have been fabricated and characterized optically. Intense visible lights and near-infrared emissions were observed under ultraviolet light and 488 nm laser excitation. The density, refractive index, optical absorption, Judd-Ofelt parameters, and spontaneous transition probabilities have been measured and calculated. Intense fluorescences at 1.2 and 1.29 μm wavelengths were observed, indicating that the glasses are promising materials for laser and optical amplifier applications operating in the 1.2-1.3 μm low-loss window of telecommunication fiber. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
