Abstract

The luminescence characteristics of Ce3+ doped M-Si-Al-O-N glasses (M = Sc, Y, La, Gd) have been examined by means of fluorospectrometry. It was found that the emission energy is strongly dependent on the composition of the glass and in particular to the cerium content of the glass. With increasing cerium content the emission shifts to longer wavelengths. This emission shift is ascribed to energy transfer, which explains the dependence of the emission wavelength on the cerium concentration. Evidence was found for the existence of multiple cerium sites in the glasses; some of which are preliminary attributed to cerium clusters or pairs.
