Condensed-Matter Spectroscopy


Luminescence spectra of silver-containing oxyfluoride glasses have been investigated in the excitation spectral range of 360–480 nm. Analysis of the luminescence spectra shows that silver in oxyfluoride glasses that contain no strong reducers and were subjected to heat treatment affecting redox processes exists in the form of neutral atoms and neutral molecular Ag2, Ag3, and Ag4 clusters.
