The spectra of copper-lutetium-phosphate and copper-erbium-phosphate glasses have been studied within the spectral range 4000 to 400 cm- by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Incorporation of a small amount of lutetium or erbium influences some band positions compared with binary copper phosphate glasses. The additional bands in the range 491 to 576 cm-1 are attributed to the presence of Lu-O and Er-O groups. It has been observed that annealing of the samples at 500 ° C leads to a slight shift in the peak positions. © 1990 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
