Resumo

Zinc phosphate glasses (PZABPTb) in the compositional system: P2O5-ZnO-Al2O3-BaO-PbO doped with variable Tb3+ concentrations (1-5 wt% Tb2O3) were prepared and characterized through absorption, excitation, emission and intensity decay rate measurements. The Judd-Ofelt model has been adopted to evaluate the radiative properties of the D-5(4)-->F-7(6-3) emission transitions. The effect of Tb3+ ion concentration on the emissions from the D-5(3,4) excited levels is discussed in detail. Analysis of the intensity decay curves corresponding to blue and green emissions from levels D-5(3) and D-5(4), respectively, allowed determination of effective lifetimes, which confirmed the Tb3+ ion concentration quenching of the blue emission in these glasses. The decay curves for the D-5(3) level are found to be non-exponential in nature for all the studied concentrations due to ion-ion energy transfer through cross-relaxation. In an attempt to identify the origin of the energy transfer mechanism, the decay curves were well fitted to the Inokuti-Hirayama model for S=6, which indicates that the energy transfer process is of dipole-dipole type. The optical band gap energy (E-opt) has been evaluated taking into account the ultraviolet edge of absorption spectra. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
