Cathodoluminescence in the scanning electron microscope and photoluminescence in a confocal microscope have been used to investigate the luminescence properties of the stable monoclinic α-phase of Bi_2O_3. Powders of this oxide have been sintered at temperatures of 500 °C and 750 °C in air or in nitrogen atmospheres. Spectra of the starting powder and of the samples treated at 500 °C show luminescence bands at 1.50 eV and 1.95 eV as well as a band at 2.1 eV, more prominent in nitrogen treated samples. Sintering at 750 °C leads to quenching of the 1.50 eV infrared emission and the formation of a broad band with emission above 3 eV. The evolution of Raman bands with the sintering treatments has also been investigated.
