The influence of γ-ray irradiation on the optical properties of Bi2O3-B2O3-SiO2glass has been investigated. Broadband infrared (IR) emission at 1310 nm with a FWHMover 200 nm is observed in the γ-ray irradiated glass. The IR luminescence depends on the γ-ray irradiation dose and the concentration of Bi2O3. The thermal stability of the γ-ray irradiated IR luminescence center is studied, and the origin of the IR luminescence center has been suggested. © 2013 Optical Society of America.
