Abstract: In this work, the thermal lens spectrometry was applied to measure the thermo-optical properties of Nd2O3-doped low silica calcium aluminosilicate glasses as a function of temperature, between 4.3 and 300 K. The thermal relaxation calorimetry was used to determine the specific heat, cp. The results showed a decrease of the thermal diffusivity of about one order of magnitude from 4.3 K up to 300 K, with a T-1 dependence in the interval between 20 and 70 K and a T-0.35 between 4.3 and 20 K. The fluorescence quantum efficiencies of the doped samples were calculated down to 50 K, showing a variation of the order of 12% and 25% for the samples with 0.6 and 1.04 mol% of Nd2O3, respectively. In addition, the temperature corresponding to the maximum in cp/T3, the so-called boson peak, was observed at about 17 K for the undoped sample and at lower temperatures for the doped glasses. In conclusion, our results showed the ability of the time resolved thermal lens to determine the thermo-optical properties of glasses at temperatures lower than 300 K, bringing new possibilities for experiments in a wide range of optical materials. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
