Optical Investigation of Bi2O3-B2O3 Glass System
Glasses with composition xBi2O3:(100-x)B2O3 with 30x70 (in mol%) have been prepared using the normal melt-quench technique and investigated their properties. The optical absorption spectra of the glasses have been measured in the wavelength range 400-700 nm. It has been found that, the fundamental absorption edge has been identified from the optical absorption spectra. The values of optical band gap were decreased and the molar volumes were increased, with the addition of Bi2O3, due to the formulation of non-bridging oxygen (NBOs).
