2 MeV Cu+ ions were implanted in silica glass at doses from 1×1015 to 1×1017 ions/cm2. Cu+-ion implanted silica glass followed by heat treatment showed photoluminescence due to monovalent copper ions. The photoluminescence intensity was the highest at a dose of 1×1016 Cu+ ions/cm2 in the present implantation condition. It was deduced that co-implantation of oxygen ions stabilizes the monovalent copper ions in silica glass.
