For clusters with ODC(I), the nature of the 7.6 eV absorption band can be explained as a manifestation of the localized states of the disordered structure of silica modified by an oxygen deficit. However, for clusters with ODC(II), the nature of the 5.0 eV absorption band can be ascribed to a single electron promotion from the Si lone pair sp orbital to a vacant [p.sub.[pi]] orbital on the same atom.
