  1. Rare Earths in Sol-Gel GlassesDaniel M. Boye, Davidson College, DMR 0959552 • Post Annealing Immersion • New technique for studying pore network • Fluorescent ions introduced into porous network via solutions, varying dopants and concentrations • Energy transfer between different dopants monitored to determine proximity • Aluminum Co-doping • Al co-doping can significantly increase emission yield independent of Rare Earth ion used • Continuing work in our group to study mechanism • Monitor emission of Tb3+ green emission when excited through its 4f84f75d transition which is more sensitive to host coupling compared to 4f84f8 transitions • Decreasing emission with increasing Al concentration indicates weaker coupling to host one dopant in original sample re-anneal immersion 4f84f75d transition 542nm emission Wavelength (nm) Tb3+ emission result of energy transfer from excited Gd3+ ions
