Paper Abstract

Sodium borate glass embedded with Tb3+, Sm3+ and Dy3+ was made by the melt quenching technique. The resulting glass is highly transparent. Absorption, and emission spectral measurements are performed. Under a diode laser excitation the glass emitted warm white light. Lifetimes of the excited levels are measured. CIE color co-ordinates and color temperature are measured.
