    • Influence of Bi$_2$O$_3$, Sb$_2$O$_3$ and Y$_2$O$_3$ on optical properties of Er$_2$O$_3$-doped CaO–P$_2$O$_5$–B$_2$O$_3$ glasses


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The glasses of the composition 25CaO–10(M$_2$O$_3$)–14P$_2$O$_5$–50B$_2$O$_3$:1Er$_2$O$_3$ (where M$=$Bi/Sb/Y) are prepared. The prepared samples are characterized by XRD, thermoluminescence (TL),UVand photoluminescence (PL) techniques. TL reports suggest that the sample of 10 mol%Y2O3 concentration (EY) exhibiting good shape symmetry factor ($u = 0.484$) and low AEs ($E_{\tau} = 1.189$, $E_{\delta} = 1.218$ and $E_{\omega} = 1.210$) under $\gamma$-irradiation might be a good TL asset. The optical absorptions of present glasses are studied well through the Judd–Ofelt theory.The evaluations such as Judd–Ofelt parameters are additionallyprojected. They are found to be the best ($\Omega_2 = 1.62 \times 10^{−21}$ cm$^2$, $\Omega_4 = 1.56 \times 10^{−21}$ cm$^2$ and $\Omega_6 = 0.59 \times 10^{−21}$ cm$^2$) for the sample of 10 mol% Y$_2$O$_3$ concentration (E$_{\rm Y}$), which may be a good optical asset to develop a novel class of laser resources. The radiative evolutions corresponding to the emissive transition ${}^4$S$_{3/2}$ $\to$ ${}^4$I$_{15/2}$ are assessed by PL technique. The evaluations are found to be the best ($A_t = 7089$ s$^{−1}$, $\tau_{\rm rad} = 140$ $\mu$s and $\beta = 96.1$%) for the sample of 10 mol% Y$_2$O$_3$concentration (E$_{\rm Y}$), which may be a useful luminescent resource.
