Abstract

In this study, highly Eu3+–doped (up to 5 mol%) 10ZnO–40Bi2O3–50B2O3 glasses were prepared by melt quench process. The excitation and emission results of the prepared glasses were recorded in the visible region. The Judd–Ofelt intensity and CIE chromaticity parameters of the glasses were calculated and discussed. The nonlinear optical properties of glasses were studied at a pumping wavelength of 532 nm under a nanosecond regime utilizing the sensitive Z–scan technique. We investigated the linear attenuation coefficient (LAC) for the prepared glasses for energies ranging from 0.296 to 1.458 MeV. According to the Zeff results, 10ZnO–40Bi2O3–45B2O3–5Eu2O3 exhibited good attenuation properties among the fabricated samples.
