Transparent oxyfluoride glass-ceramics obtained by the adequate heat treatment of Nd3+-doped glass with composition SiO2-Al2O3-Na2O-LaF3 are investigated. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) show that the precipitated nanocrystals are LaF3 with a crystal size between 9-12 nm. Furthermore, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis shows the incorporation of Nd3+ ions into the LaF3 nanocrystals. Site-selective and time-resolved emission and excitation spectra of the 4F3/2 and 4F5/2 states, allows to unambiguously isolate the emission of Nd3+ ions in LaF3 nanocrystals which shows well defined spectra, similar to those obtained for pure LaF3 crystal.
