Abstract The optical emission from the 5d – 4f allowed transition of Pr 3+ ions embedded in sol-gel silica is investigated for High Energy Physics applications requiring fast scintillating materials. A complete and detailed characterization of the optical, scintillation and radiation hardness properties of Pr-doped silica is carried out employing different experimental techniques including steady-state and time-resolved photo-luminescence, radio- and thermo-luminescence, scintillation and optical absorption. Optical absorption measurements, performed after X-ray irradiation sequences up to 1 kGy, evidence the formation of radiation-induced absorption bands relat...
