Abstract

Excited state absorption (ESA) measurements of the Cr:Li2B4O7 glass (Cr:LBO-glass) along with preliminary interpretation are presented. The presence of chromium in its tri- (d3) and hexa- (d0) valence states is observed. Both Cr3+ and Cr6+ ions appear to contribute in the de-excitation processes and can be attributed in the ESA spectra under excitation wavelengths at 308 nm, 488 nm, 515 nm and 610 nm. The ESA spectra detected with UV excitation have been interpreted in terms of transitions in the framework of the Cr5+O− centre, which forms after charge-transfer-type absorption in the [CrO4]2− group. Assumption of the double-electron state of the 3d22p4 electronic configuration together with crystal-field-split states of the 3d12p5 configuration allowed us to reproduce the obtained ESA spectra. The ESA spectra of the Cr3+ ions have different characteristics and are related to transitions to the conduction band.
