Glasses containing Ce were prepared by the sol-gel method at elevated temperatures. Two parallel series one in air and another in nitrogen atmosphere, were obtained. The main constituent of the glasses was silica SiO2 obtained by hydrolysis of ethoxysilane (TEOS). Parallel series of glasses were prepared with addition of boron and aluminum. Spectroscopic properties of the glasses were mainly studied by absorption spectroscopy, luminescence spectroscopy and life-time measurements. The comparison of the spectral properties of the glasses was made with existing information on spectroscopy of cerium in crystals and conventional glass. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
