Photoluminescence properties of the Er3+–Dy3+ codoped tellurite glasses were studied by absorption and visible emission spectra, which revealed luminescence bands of both Er3+ and Dy3+ when pumping with the wavelength of 325 nm. The
concentration quenching occurred as Dy3+ concentration increased beyond 3 mol%. The dependence of Er3+ characteristic emission on Dy3+ concentration indicated energy transfer process between Er3+ and Dy3+. The chromaticity coordinates
of these glasses are close to white light, which implies that these glasses might be potential candidates for white lighting through an appropriate combination.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
