A monolithic Bismuth-Aluminium codoped silica glass was prepared from nano-porous silica xerogels using a conventional solution doping technique with a heterotrinuclear complex and subsequent sintering. This novel approach enabled the preparation of the silica glass which contains a single luminescent center, namely an Al-connected Bi-center.
