Abstract: A zero-phonon component of the 1.5 mu m emission band of Er3+ in the nano-glass-ceramics 32(SiO2)9(AlO1.5)31.5(CdF2)18.5(PbF2)5.5(ZnF2):3.5(ErF3) mol %, shifts to higher energy and splits into Zeeman doublet in external magnetic field. These effects make it possible to flatten the amplification band of the Er3+-doped amplifier. The blue photoluminescence shift can be ascribed to quantum confinement effect on the 1.5 mu m emission band of Er3+ in nano-glass-ceramics, where most of the Er3+ dopants are located in the PbF2 nanocrystals of about 8 nm in diameter.
