Title: Structural and luminescence studies on Eu{sup 3+}: B{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Li{sub 2}O-MO-LiF (M=Ba, Bi, Pb and Zn) glasses

Abstract

The present work reports structural and luminescence studies on 54B{sub 2}O{sub 3}+25Li{sub 2}O+15MO+ 5LiF+1Eu{sub 2}O{sub 3} (where M= Ba, Pb, Bi and Zn) glasses prepared by following melt quenching technique. The influence of the metal ions in the host matrix have been studied by measuring FTIR, absorption and luminescence spectra. The presence of the functional units in the prepared glasses have been explored through FTIR studies. The Judd-Ofelt (JO) intensity parameters have been determined from the luminescence spectra. The JO parameters have been used to calculate stimulated emission cross-section ({sigma}{sup E}{sub P}), branching ratios ({beta}{sub R}) and radiative lifetime ({tau}{sub R}) for the {sup 5}D{sub 0}{yields}{sup 7}F{sub J} (J= 1, 2, 3 and 4) transitions of the Eu{sup 3+} ions in the prepared glasses.
