Abstract
Oxy-fluoride glasses containing strontium carbonate doped with samarium have been prepared. The glasses are sorted with respect to the quantity of strontium carbonate. The fluorescence spectra recorded for different pumping wavelengths are presented. We have investigated the influence of the excitation on the efficiency of the fluorescence, depending on the quantity of strontium carbonate in the samples for a variety of excitation wavelengths. The results of optical pumping in the range 370 - 490 nm show a typical fluorescence spectrum of Sm3+. When pumped with wavelengths above 500 nm a new peak that has not been reported appeared in the fluorescence spectrum. From the data analysis the range of appearance of the fluorescence peak was determined and the most efficient source for its excitation was found.
