In this work we present the results of our recent studies on up-conversion phenomena in erbium doped TZN glasses. The set of five samples, of concentrations ranging from 1000 to 37500 ppm, has been carefully investigated by means of highly resolved laser spectroscopy, with specific attention concentrated on possible up-conversion processes resulting in red, green and violet emission under semiconductor lasers pumping. The excitation-dependant luminescence spectra together with fluorescence dynamics profiles enabled analysis of processes responsible for observed behaviour of up-converted emission.
