Abstract


This paper is devoted  to the study of the relationship between structure and optical properties of silica glasses doped with optically active Er3+ ions and reported the influence of the suitably selected heat treatment on the optical properties of silica glasses. The physico-chemical properties of Er3+doped silica are presented, which has been related with the effects of hydroxyl groups on the luminescence property  of Er3+ in the host matrix of silica.
