Abstract: Intense near-ultraviolet (UV) upconversion emission of 365 nm has been obtained in Tm3+/Yb3+ co-doped lithium gallogermanate oxide glass upon a 980-nm laser diode excitation. This near-UV emission originates from the Tm3+:D-1(2) -> H-3(6) transition. The cross relaxation process [(1)G(4), H-3(4)].[F-3(4), D-1(2)] is shown to play a critical role in population of the emitting level Tm3+ D-1(2). The low phonon energy (similar to 825 cm(-1)) and high transparency at near-UV of the glass matrix also contribute to this emission. The emission cross section is calculated to be 6.46 x 10(-21) cm(2), which is larger than Tm3+ 1.47 and 1.80-mu m transitions. The results indicate that, other than single crystal and nano-glass-ceramic, this system is a promising alternative for development of near-UV lasers.
