Abstract Transparent glass–ceramics containing Eu 3 + doped CaF 2 nanocrystals were prepared. The microstructural evolution of the samples was studied with DTA, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). After heat-treatment at 560 °C for 10 h, the precipitated CaF 2 crystallites in the sample were 60–90 nm in size and dispersed equally in the amorphous phase. The high transparency of glass–ceramics was mainly ascribed to the small difference of… CONTINUE READING
