Paper Abstract

Aluminophosphate glasses doped with rare-earth ions have recently attracted a large interest owing to their relevant non-linear optical properties. Until now, all studies were done over the glasses doped with rare-earth ions in which the rare-earth ions were into a vitreous silica matrix. Our study was made as for rare-earth ions into a vitreous aluminophosphate matrix. In the first step, the sample of rare-earth doped glasses were obtained by melting the raw materials batch and then by adding rare-earth oxides. In the second step, the resulted glass was annealed. By mean of a spectrophotometer, were drawn absorption and transmission spectra, in UV - visible domain. For IR domain we used a SHIMADZU-FTIR-8001PC spectrophotometer.
