Abstract

Authors aim to make a study on gamma (γ) rays effects over inorganic glassy materials. The Nd3+ content as well as high energetic induced radiation in the glass compositions resulted in the B–O–B bonds depolymerization creating NBOs (Non-Bridging Oxygens) in the matrices, interpreted through FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectra. The decrease in the Tg, Hr and H values obtained from Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) thermograms and Vickers Microhardness Tester respectively, proved the changes in the glass structure after irradiation. The drastic decrease in the intensities of UV-VIS absorption and Photoluminescence (PL) emission peaks after irradiation, prompted the creation of defect points in the samples. The JO (Judd-Ofelt) theory was implemented to understand the asymmetric and covalent nature of the matrix and also to predict the radiative properties. The EPR (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance) spectra proved the presence of defects in the samples both pre and post irradiation. These changes were correlated with the Nd (Neodymium) and O (Oxygen) concentration ratios, studied through EDS (Energy-Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy), which showed decrease in the elemental composition post irradiation. The UV-VIS differential absorption spectra of the samples after γ irradiation depicts defects in the glass network with feasibility in valency change from Nd3+ to Nd2+ and decrease in Nd3+ ions number density after irradiation. Dipole-Dipole interactions within the ions were analyzed through lifetime decay measurement. 1.0 mol% of Nd3+ ions showed better radiation resistant nature and quality optical properties when compared to other samples both before and after γ rays interactions.
