Near-infrared quantum cutting involving the emission of near-infrared photons by downconversion cooperative energy transfer from Eu2+ to Yb3+ in borate glasses was reported. Electron spin resonance spectra and absorption spectra were measured to prove the existence of Eu2+ in borate glasses. Excitation, emission, and fluorescence decay measurements were performed to examine the occurrence of cooperative energy transfer from Eu2+ to Yb3+ ions. Yb3+ concentration dependent quantum efficiency was calculated and the maximum efficiency approaches 164.19%.
