ABSTRACT. Borate glasses of (50-x) H3BO3-10SrF2-10Bi2O3-20ZnO-10SiO2-Mx (M = Dy2O3, x= 0.1) are prepared by melt quenching method. The resultant sample is characterized using X-ray diffract meter in order to confirm the amorphous nature. Further, the optical absorption spectrum is recorded to illustrate Judd-Ofelt (J-O) values and radiative parameters. The allowed transitions are also reported.

Keywords: borate glasses, optical absorption spectrum, melt quenching method
