    A detailed characterization of energy level lifetimes and energy-transfer processes in Er3+-doped and Er3+, Pr3+-codoped ZBLAN bulk glasses is presented. Energy transfer upconversion parameters from the Er3+ 4I13/2 and 4I11/2 levels have been measured and are compared to energy transfer from Er3+ to a Pr3+ codopant. To assess the practicality of energy transfer a high power, diode pumped, 3 μm, Er3+, Pr3+- codoped ZBLAN fiber laser is presented.
