Abstract

We report on the use of 800 nm, 250 kHz femtosecond laser pulses to precipitate Er(3+)-doped CaF(2) crystals inside oxyfluoride glass, which was confirmed with x-ray diffraction analysis. Confocal upconversion luminescence spectra show that the precipitated crystals have greatly enhanced upconversion luminescence intensity in comparison with unmodified glass. We demonstrate the possibility of three-dimensional optical data storage in the glass by the use of the confocal upconversion luminescence imaging.
