Researchers from K.N. Toosi University of Technology Report on Findings in Optoelectronics

June 4, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Investigators publish new report on Optoelectronics. According to news reporting from Tehran, Iran, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Rare earth doped oxyfluoride glass-ceramics containing CaF2 nano-crystals were prepared by melt quenching."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the K.N. Toosi University of Technology, "For the crystallized samples, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray diffraction (XRD) experiments indicated the existence of nano-crystals with the incorporation of Rare earth ions in the lattice among the oxide glassy matrix, which is important for obtaining desirable luminescent performance of glass-ceramics. Absorption spectra of the obtained oxyfluoride glass-ceramics were studied."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Emission spectra of the obtained samples were also studied under different excitation wavelengths."
