The luminescence behaviors of doped glass ceramics containing nanocrystals were investigated. The formation of nanocrystals in the glass ceramics was confirmed by x-ray diffraction and high resolution transmission electron microscopy. Energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy analysis showed that the ions were efficiently incorporated in nanocrystals. The efficient upconversion luminescence of the in the glass ceramics can be observed. The lifetime of the in the glass ceramics was found to be much longer than that in the glass due to the lower phonon energy of fluoride crystals when entered efficiently fluoride crystals in the glass ceramics.
