The report describes fabrication of phototropic materials based on oxide glass-ceramics. The report focuses on the application phototropic materials, in particular on their role in the modern laser technology as a saturable absorber.
The working principle of saturable absorbers based on transition metal ions in a four-coordinated environment has been considered. The main requirements to the materials are substantiated, attention is paid to the peculiarities of the excitation and relaxation processes of such ions in the "saturable absorber" regime. A list of actual crystalline media showing a significant phototropic effect upon activation by transition metal ions is given. The demands and direction of the search for new media for the realization of the phototropic effect of transition metal ions are shown.
The possibility of directed control of the functional parameters of saturable absorbers by creating phototropic materials based on composite glass-ceramic (GC) media as a matrix for the accommodation of transition metal ions is discussed. The principal features of the preparation and structure of such materials are considered, the possibility of their use as saturable absorbers and comparative characteristics are shown. The choice of a model system of glass ceramics (oxide nanocrystals activated by Co2+ in a glass matrix) is substantiated. GC allows one to change the parameters of nonlinear absorption by variation the crystal field on the metal ions if the composition of the matrix medium is modified.
