Paper Abstract

For SiO2 glass samples doped with Cu+ ions at 150 - 500 ppm and prepared by the sol-gel method the absorption, excitation and emission spectra are recorded. Due to excitation in the broad absorption band (250 - 350 nm) a strong luminescence at 540 nm and of FWHM equals 100 nm is observed. Dependencies of the spectral characteristics of this emission on the excitation indicate on the ASE and a possible lasing potential.
