The paper deals with the first experiment results on research of a synthesis method for nanoparticles doped by erbium. Using a low-temperature synthesis (180 ° C) in the anhydrous solvent instead of the standard synthesis method in the aqueous medium with the following high temperature processing (700 ° C) gives the possibility to avoid nanoparticles coagulation and keep their initial nano size and, therefore, to obtain transparent nanocomposite material suitable for photonics applications. Comparison of experimental data (absorption and luminescence spectra) with the literary one, confirms the receipt of the erbium oxide nanocrystals.
