In this paper we report on the fabrication and properties of Er3 and Er3/Yb3 doped Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) layers. The reported layers were fabricated by spin coating on silicon or on quartz substrates. Infrared spectroscopy was used for an investigation of O-H stretching vibration. Measurement were made of the transmission spectra in the wavelength ranges from 350 to 700 nm for the Er3 doped samples and from 900 to 1040 nm for the Yb3 doped samples. The refractive indices were investigated in the spectral range from 300 to 1100 nm using optical ellipsometry and the photoluminescence spectra were measured in the infrared region.
