Abstract.  The proposition of trivalent europium as a luminescent dopant in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) host is presented. Optical characterization and fabrication technology of the Eu3+ doped polymeric fiber is shown. The proposed luminescent material exhibits an intense luminescence under 355- and 405-nm excitation. Additionally, the measured decay time (0.51 ms, D50F72 transition) at third harmonic Nd:YAG excitation showed low luminescence quenching in Eu3+ chelate doped PMMA. The luminescent properties and influence of spectral attenuations on the luminescence shape in fabricated fibers are also presented.
