Paper Abstract

Structural and optical behavior of Pr-doped lead fluoroborate glass has been investigated. Incorporation of PbF2 results in structural and optical changes around Pr3+ ions and surrounding ligands, which were analyzed using X-ray diffraction, Raman, IR and luminescence spectroscopy. Shift of spectral lines has been observed, when lead oxide is totally substituted by lead fluoride in glass composition. Luminescence corresponding to the 1D2 - 3H4 transition of Pr3+ ions has been detected. The peak luminescence wavelength is changed from 604 nm to 599 nm and linewidth decreases from 23.5 nm to 18 nm, whereas the infrared bands due to the B-O vibrations are shifted to lower frequency region.
