Lanthanide–Doped Lead Borate Glasses for Optical Applications $59.00
Authors: Joanna Pisarska and Wojciech A. Pisarski (University of Technology, Katowice, Poland, and others) 
Book Description:
The short-range-order structure of lead borate glasses is rather complex and depends on the relative ratios of boron to lead atoms in chemical composition. Different structural groups like penta- and diborates containing three and four coordinated boron, ring- and chain-type metaborate units containing non-bridging oxygens, and boroxol ring can be found in lead borate glasses. Borate glasses with PbO and/or PbX2 content doped with Ln3+ have been investigated using spectroscopic methods in relation to practical applications as solid-state laser active media, NIR tunable lasers, NIR-to-visible up-conversion systems and broadband optical amplifiers. This new book presents aspects concerning the excited state relaxation of Ln3+ ions in lead borate glasses and glass-ceramics are discussed, as well as optical properties of lanthanide-doped lead borate glasses.

Table of Contents:
1. Introduction

2. Radiative and Non-Eadiative Processes for Ln3+ Ions in Glasses: Theoretical Background

5. Excited State Relaxation of Ln3+ Ions in Lead Borate Glasses

6. Influence of PbX2 Content (X = F, Cl, Br), Activator Concentration and Thermal Treatment on Luminescence of Ln3+ Ions in Lead Borate Glasses

7. Conclusions
