Paper Abstract

It is shown that glass fibers doped with luminescent molecular clusters of silver, cadmium and lead chalcogenides, or copper (I) can be used for the efficient radiation conversion of ultraviolet (UV) radiation to the visible spectral region. The advantages of radiation trapping in fibers by the luminescent centers and of spectral conversion are discussed. The excitation and luminescence spectra of luminescent fibers are presented. Analysis of application areas of the luminescent glasses and fibers is performed. The construction of the sensitive element for sensor models for electrical spark and UV radiation detection is described. The characteristics of the models of sensors for electrical spark and UV radiation detection are presented.
