Paper Abstract

For the first time the photochromic effect for cerium doped bismuth-germanium oxide Bi12GeO20 is presented. The results for coloring and optical decoloring at room temperature and at liquid nitrogen temperature are shown as function of illuminating light. The coloring of BGO:Ce crystals produces two different photochromic states dependent on the coloring temperature.
