Abstract: Non-radiative energy transfer from Eu3+ to Tm3+ has been studied by observing the steady state emission of Eu3+ with varying concentration of Tm3+ in zinc phosphate glass. It has been observed that Eu3+ ion emission intensity decreases with increasing Tm3+ concentration resulting in a non-radiative energy transfer from Eu3+ to Tm3+ whereas energy transfer from Tm3+ to Eu3+ was not observed between donor and acceptor ions. This energy transfer has been explained on the basis of cross-relaxation of energy. The energy transfer mechanism and other parameters related to energy transfer between Eu3+ and Tm3+ have been computed.
