Paper Abstract

The optical, luminescent and stability properties of TEOS-GPTMS gel glasses doped with rhodamine B were studied in the paper. Two reversed influences of organic modifier on improving the optical quality of gel glass matrix and reinforcing the non-irradiation transitions of dye molecules was proved. Different mechanisms of thermal degradation and photo degradation were indicated, thermal oxygenation process between environmental oxygen and dye molecules for thermal degradation, and photochemistry reaction between dye and other active reactants in the matrix for photo degradation. Thermal degradation of laser dyes caused by oxidization reaction was the key destroying path of the solid dye gain medium based on the gel glass during pumped with water.
