    • Abstract


      Optical properties of transparent alumina prepared through gel process at room temperature and coloured with dopants have been studied. The absorption bands, molar absorptivity, effect of concentration and the dependence of oxidation state of copper on the copper content and water content are similar to the random network glasses. The ultraviolet absorption edge at lower energies confirm the disordered nature of the transition phase aluminasγ andδ. The absorption bands in the visible suggest the octahedral symmetry of oxygen around aluminum.
