Preparation and Characterization of Nanostructures in Glasses

Melt quenching was used to make sodium borate and sodium-lead-germano-tellurite (SLGT) oxyfluoride glasses embedded with Er3+ and/or Ag. The glasses were characterised using thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, and optical spectroscopy measurements. Heat treatment of the glasses resulted in the formation of nanoparticles. Because of the increased field in the vicinity of silver particles, Er3+ luminescence…
