Intense ultraviolet upconversion emission was produced in single Tm3+-doped OH--free low silica calcium aluminosilicate glasses. A new excitation route based upon multi-Stokes Raman emissions generated in an optical fiber pumped at 1.064 µm, and exploiting the absorption band around 1.2 µm by means of the 3H5 thulium excited state, was used. Furthermore, the other bands of the stimulated Raman scattering spectrum resonantly enhances all the upconversion processes, resulting in efficient ultraviolet (295 nm, 360 nm), blue (456 nm, 480 nm), red (650 nm, 667 nm), and near-infrared (800 nm) emissions. The population of the 1P0, 1D2, 1G4, 3F2 and 3H4 excited-state emitting levels was accomplished through stepwise multi-photon absorption. Results indicate competing cross-relaxation processes involving Tm3+ ion-pairs producing UV emission population quenching
