      Optical properties of Sm3+ ion in phosphate glassy matrices were studied. The absorption, fluorescence, excitation spectra and decay patterns were obtained at room temperature. The oscillator strengths of the transitions betweenJ manifolds were calculated using Judd-Ofelt theory and compared with the ones obtained experimentally. Various laser intensity parameters such as J-O parameters, radiative transition probabilities, lifetimes, branching ratio, and integrated absorption cross-section were evaluated. Radiative lifetimes of the excited states were determined and used to obtain nonradiative transition rates and quantum yields. Integrated intensity and dynamics of the fluorescence originating from the excited states were also studied as a function of Sm3+ concentration.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The Cu2+ ion doped silica gel matrices in monolithic shape were prepared by hydrolysis and condensation of tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS). The absorption, transmittance and fluorescence spectra of the gel matrices heat treated at different temperatures were monitored. The loss of water and hydroxyl group from silica network changes the optical properties of the Cu2+ ions in the host, noted by the change in colour of monolith and spectral characteristics. The pronounced blue shift observed (700–900 nm to 600–850 nm) for the broad band of the absorption spectra of the samples heated up to 700°C is attributed to the ligand field splitting and partial removal of hydroxyl group from the silica matrices. The results indicate broadband filtering effects of the samples in the wavelength region 400–600 nm. Absorption and fluorescence spectra of the glass matrices heated to 1000°C confirms the conversion of Cu2+ ion to Cu+ ion.
