Aseries of luminescent glass composed of CaO-CaF2-B2O3-SiO2 doped with samariumoxide (CFBS: Sm) were prepared. The structure, infrared transmittance and fluorescent properties of the samples were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transforminfrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and photoluminescence (PL) measurements, respectively. The XRD patterns of the CFBS:S msamples showed that the glass matrix had a non-crystalline structure, while the FTIR spectra exhibited shifts of absorption wavelength sensitive to the structure and function of the samples. The PL spectra of the CFBS:Smglasses showed the characteristic emission of Sm3+ centered at 566, 603 and 650 nmunder 404 nmexcitation, and their luminescence color was red-orange (x=0.531, y=0.371). Furthermore, the intensity of emission and fluorescent lifetime of Sm3+ at 603 nm (4G5/2) increased with the molar ratio of CaF2 in the glass samples. The enhanced intensity of emission, fluorescent lifetime and quantumefficiency with increasing molar ratio of CaF2 may result fromthe reduction of phonon energy in the CFBS:S mglass because some CaF2 substitutes CaO in the glass matrix.
