This contribution reports on detailed experimental and numerical investigations of both near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (MIR) photoluminescence obtained in praseodymium trivalent ion doped chalcogenide-selenide glass fiber. The experimental analysis allows for the identification of the radiative transitions within the praseodymium ion energy level structure to account for the photoluminescent behavior. Numerical analysis is carried out using the rate equations’ approach to calculate the level populations. The numerical analysis provides further insight into the nature of the radiative transitions in the Pr3+ ion doped chalcogenide-selenide glass and allows for the identification of the electronic transitions, which contribute to the observed photoluminescence. The numerical results agree well with the experimental results.
