Evolution of Yb3+ environment and luminescence properties under ionizing irradiation in aluminoborosilicate glasses

Abstract : Yb-doped aluminoborosilicate glasses were irradiated with 2.3 MeV electron and gamma rays at different doses ranging between 10(4) and 2.6 x 10(9) Gy and the local structure around the Yb3+ ions has been studied using a combination of NMR. EPR and photoluminescence spectroscopic techniques. The spectroscopic results indicate the presence of two distinct Yb3+ sites in these glasses and their relative fractions depend on both the Yb concentration and the irradiation dose. These two sites can be attributed to Yb3+ ions with and without Yb next-nearest neighbors. The evolution of the shape of the F-7(5/2) -> F-7(7/2) infrared emission band under irradiation is explained by a preferential reduction of the Yb3+ ions with Yb next-nearest neighbors at high integrated doses (>10(8) Gy). This interpretation is supported by a strong decrease of the visible cooperative luminescence under irradiation due to the reduction into the Yb pairs. In other terms, it shows an interesting effect of ionizing irradiation on the Yb clusters. A low intensity emission band appears in irradiated samples at 390 nm that can be attributed to Yb2+. Finally, the decrease of the Yb3+ fluorescence lifetime observed under irradiation appears to be primarily due to electronic interaction of these ions with Non-Bridging Oxygen Hole Centre defects created by the ionizing radiation.
