Paper Abstract

An organically modified silicate (ormosil) material, which contains methyl groups chemically bonded to the silicate network, was developed as a host material for organic dyes. The undoped material is hard, transparent, stable to water, can be cut and polished, and processed at temperatures less than 100 degree(s) C. Absorption and emission spectra are presented for a variety of laser and NLO dyes which were successfully incorporated into the ormosil host material. For comparison, spectra are also presented for some dyes in liquid and/or SiO2 zerogel.
