abstract: Samples of Nb2O5 were prepared by laser floating zone (LFZ) technique and by solid-state reaction in order to study some of their physical properties as a function of synthesis conditions. Single crystals fibres were obtained by LFZ, while a structural orthorhombic to monoclinic phase transition was observed in samples sintered at temperature higher than 800°C. Transmission optical spectroscopy and photoconductivity measurements allowed identifying a ∼3.2eV bandgap energy for the H-Nb2O5 monoclinic crystalline phase. Band gap shrinkage of ∼100meV was observed from 14K to RT. For the orthorhombic phase (T-Nb2O5), the photoconductivity measurements evidence a higher energy bandgap. The sintered samples have shown a broad recombination luminescence band at the orange/red spectral region while no luminescence was detected from the LFZ grown fibres. A dielectric constant of ∼40 was found for the 800°C and 1200°C sintered pellets while that of 1000°C reached four times that value. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
