Dynamics of defects in Ce³⁺ doped silica affecting its performance as protective filter in ultraviolet high-power lasers.


We investigate defects forming in Ce³⁺-doped fused silica samples following exposure to nanosecond ultraviolet laser pulses and their relaxation as a function of time and exposure to low intensity light at different wavelengths. A subset of these defects are responsible for inducing absorption in the visible and near infrared spectral range, which is of… (More)
