Paper Abstract

The high concentrated silica glasses doped with Ce and Sm ions were prepared by the sol-gel technique. The possibility of preparation of the Ce-doped glasses with a low absorption coefficient in the optical range above 350 nm and the luminescence quantum yield >= 90 percent is reported. Such glasses seem to be promising as filters for laser heads. The relatively high light scattering for Sm-doped glasses has been also observed.
