Abstract

The results of the study of the pulsed UV laser radiation effect on the spectral properties of the borosilicate and the phosphate glasses doped with the copper chloride nanocrystals with the mean size of 26-70 Å are discussed. The changes of the exciton absorption spectra of the CuCl nanocrystals with various mean sizes induced by different duration of the laser exposure are studied. The effect of the phosphate glass transmission reduction in the visible region upon pulsed UV laser irradiation is obtained for the first time. The nature of the transmission reduction is discussed. The assumption is made that the transmission reduction is carried out through the formation of the color centers consisted of the Cun (n>13) clusters which have the absorption bands in the visible region. In conclusion the presence of the irreversible photochromism in the phosphate glass is stated.
