For the firsts time transparent erbium doped oxyfluoride glassceramics containing only hexagonal NaYF4 nanocrystals has been prepared by melt-quenching and subsequent heat treatment of the precursor glass. Excitation energy relaxation peculiarities of the green and red luminescence creation in Er3+ activated oxyfluoride ceramics with hexagonal NaYF4 nanocrystalls are investigated. Novel Er3+ doped transparent glass ceramics containing hexagonal Na(Gd,Lu)F4 nanocrystals were prepared from oxyfluoride glasses. A strong deviation of rare earth ion content in fluoride nanocrystals in comparison to the base glass has been observed. Preferential incorporation of Gd3+ over Lu3+ ions in the fluoride lattice leads to the stabilization of hexagonal Na(Gd,Lu)F4 structure. A considerable enhancement of upconversion luminescence correlates with the formation of hexagonal solid solutions and is attributed to an efficient energy transfer between Er3+ ions.
