Abstract

Two serial Dy(3+)-doped and Dy(3+), Tm(3+)-codoped (100-x)(0.8GeS(2).0.2Ga(2)S(3)).xCdI(2) (0Dy(3+): 6H 11/2 energy transfer efficiency and intensified the mid-infrared emissions. The emission cross sections (sigma emi) of the 2900 and 4300 nm fluorescences were estimated to be 1.68 x 10(-20) and 1.20 x 10(-20)cm(2) respectively for the 0.2 wt% Dy(3+) and 0.5 wt% Tm(3+) codoped 64 GeS(2).16 Ga(2)S(3).20 CdI(2) glass. These novel chalcohalide glasses are promising candidate materials for fiber-amplifiers and mid-infrared laser devices.
