An efficient Nd3+ ® Yb3+ energy transfer in a new series of alkali-free bariumalumino-metaphosphate glasses with a transfer efficiency reaching up to 95% has been reported here. It is due to the effective phonon assistance arising with the excellent matching of the present host phonon energy with the energy mismatch between Nd3+ (4F3/2) and Yb3+ (2F5/2) excited levels. The energy transfer microparameters for Nd3+ ® Yb3+ forward and back energy transfer are estimated from the spectral data analysis. A parameter, ET (= Nd Yb DA C − / Nd Nd DA C − ) is proposed as a quantitative measure of sensitization ability per unit loss of the donor. The parameter is found to be highest for the presently reported barium-alumino-metaphosphate glasses.
