Abstract

Titanium-doped gallium lanthanum sulfide (Ti:GLS) and gallium lanthanum oxysulfide (Ti:GLSO) glasses have an absorption band at similar to 500-600 nm that cannot be fully resolved because of its proximity to the band edge of the glass. At concentrations >0.5% a shoulder at 980 nm is observed in Ti:GLS but not in Ti :GLSO. The emission spectra of Ti:GLS and T :GLSO both peak at 900 nm with lifetimes of 67 and 97)us, respectively. We propose that the absorption at similar to 600 nm is due to the T-2(2g) -> E-2(g) transition of octahedral Ti3+ and the 980 nm shoulder is due to Ti3+-Ti4+ pairs.
