Abstract: A number of new solid solutions Ca3 − 1.5xErx□0.5xB2SiO8 (x = 0–0.4) based on borosilicate Ca3B2SiO8 are synthesized: homogeneous solid solutions with х = 0–0.125 are structurally similar to the low-temperature monoclinic polymorphic modification of β-Сa3B2SiO8; and at 0.16 < х < 0.25, to the high-temperature orthorhombic polymorph α-Сa3B2SiO8. High-temperature X-ray powder diffraction and high-temperature Raman spectroscopy (20–1000°C) are used to study the monoclinic-orthorhombic transition of solid solutions through the two-phase region (0.125 < х <0.16), thermal expansion of monoclinic and orthorhombic solid solutions (x = 0.1, 0.15), and their decomposition with the formation of silicate Ca2Er8(SiO4)6O2 above 990°C. According to the data of the optical spectroscopy, it is found that the intensity of the photoluminescence of erbium ions is significantly lower than the intrinsic luminescence of the borosilicate matrix in the entire studied range of concentrations of active ions.
