Abstract

We report on a new kind of white light emitting glass suitable for long-wavelength ultraviolet excitation by simultaneously emitting blue, green and red fluorescence, which is fabricated by melting of Ce3+-Tb3+-Mn2+ co-doped borosilicate glass. The spectroscopic properties of singly, doubly and triply doped glasses have been reported and the energy transfer from Ce3+ to Tb3+ and Mn2+ has also been investigated. By adjusting the concentration of different co-dopants, we obtained the ideal white light emitting borosilicate glass with the color coordinate (x = 0.318, y = 0.333).
