Abstract
Silicate based transparent glass-ceramics containing YLiF4(YLF) nanocrsystals have synthesized by conventional melt quenching of glass followed by controlled heat treatment of the precursor glass. X-ray diffraction powder pattern of the glass-ceramic revealed that precipitated crystalline phase was solely YLF. The averaged diameter of primary crystallites was roughly about 8 nm. It was confirmed by comparison of the fluorescent properties of rare-earth ions-doped precursor glass and glass-ceramic that rare-earth ions could be successfully incorporated into YLF nano-crystals in the glass-ceramics. This transparent glass-ceramic containing YLF nano-crystals is promising as a gain medium in rare earth-doped fiber lasers and amplifiers.
