ABSTRACT
We report a detailed experimental study on the photoluminescence activity in the UV range (4.0–4.5 eV) performed in natural and synthetic silica types both as grown and after γ exposure. Our results allow us to add new insight on the well-known emissions at 4.2 and 4.4 eV as regard their vacuum-UV excitation spectra and their kinetics behaviors. Moreover, a new contribution to the photoluminescence at 4.4 eV, excited within the absorption E band at 7.6 eV and exhibiting a strong temperature dependence, is identified and discussed in the light of the structural models reported in literature. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    This work aims specifically at studying the evolution of point defects induced by electron irradiation in the cubic polytype of SiC (3C-SiC) at temperatures ranging from 10 to 1450 K by means of photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. We identified a first annealing stage between 200 and 245 K,...
