Abstract

Zinc alumino borosilicate (ZABS) glasses incorporated with Dy3+ ions are prepared through melt-quenching technique. Non-crystallinity behaviour of the glasses are confirmed through XRD studies. The presence of functional and vibrational groups in the glass network are witnessed through FTIR studies. From the differential thermal analysis (DTA), the thermal stability of the glasses are found to be greater than 90 °C. UV–Visible–NIR spectra of glasses showed strong absorptions of Dy3+ ions in the NIR region (∼1267 nm). The highest bandgap value is obtained for ZABSDy0.5 (4.27 eV) glass that has the lowest amount of non-bridging oxygens. The ionic nature of dysprosium ions in the glass vicinity is thereby known through bonding parameter calculation. Judd-Ofelt (J-O) intensity parameters showed the trend Ω2 > Ω6 > Ω4, maintained same for all synthesized glasses. The luminescence spectra showed three emission peaks of Dy3+ ions at 482 (6H15/2), 575 (6H13/2) and 663 (6H11/2) nm. The hypersensitive transition observed at 4F9/26H13/2 exhibits a greater emission cross-section and radiative transition for all the glasses. Through the decay measurements, the lifetime of the Dy3+ ions are calculated. The estimated CIE coordinates for the glasses showed their location in white light region. The correlated colour temperature (CCT) values are obtained between 4200 and 4500 K suggesting the importance of glasses to use for white-LEDs application.
