Title: Analysis of emission spectra of Ho{sup 3+}:LFBCd glasses

In the present paper, we report on the absorption and emission properties of (0.1-1.5 mol %) Ho{sup 3+} doped LFBCd (Li{sub 2}O{sub −}LiF{sub −}B{sub 2}O{sub 3−}CdO) glasses prepared via melt quenching method. On exciting these glasses at (λ{sub exci}) = 452 nm, two emissions at 556 nm ({sup 5}S{sub 2}→{sup 5}I{sub 8}; Green), 655 nm ({sup 5}F{sub 5}→{sup 5}I{sub 8}; Red) have been obtained. Upon exciting these glasses with a 980 nm diode laser, NIR emissions at 1195 nm ({sup 5}I{sub 6}→{sup 5}I{sub 8}), 1951 nm ({sup 5}I{sub 7}→{sup 5}I{sub 8}) have been measured for 1 mol % Ho{sup 3+}:LFBCd glass. For higher concentration beyond 1.0 mol %, emission quenching of Ho{sup 3+} glass has been noticed and which has successfully been explained in terms of an energy level diagram. From absorption cross-section data, stimulated emission cross-section has been evaluated by applying McCumber's theory and further cross-sectional gain has also been computed for the emissions at 1195 nm (∼1.20 μm) and 1951 nm (∼2.0 μm) of 1 mol % Ho{sup 3+}:LFBCd glass.
