Photoluminescence properties of Bi(3+) co-doped Eu(3+) containing zinc borate glasses have been investigated and the results are reported here. Bright red emission due to a dominant electric dipole transition (5)D(0) -> (7)F(2) of the Eu(3+) ions has been observed from these glasses. The nature of Stark components from the measured fluorescence transitions of Eu(3+) ions reveal that the rare earth ions could take the lattice sites of C, or lower point symmetry in the zinc borate glass hosts. The significant enhancement of Eu(3+) emission intensity by 346nm excitation ((1)S(0)->(3)P(1), of Bi(3+) ions) elucidates the sensitization effect of co-dopant. The energy transfer mechanism between sensitizer (Bi(3+)) and activator (Eu(3+)) ions has been explained. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
