Structure and luminescence properties of glasses with compositions 50ZnO:40B2O3:10WO3:xEu2O3, 0 ≤ x ≤ 10 mol% were studied using infrared, Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopic techniques. Physical properties like density, molar volume, oxygen molar volume and oxygen packing density of the glasses were also determined. The overall results obtained indicate the efficiency of the 50ZnO:40B2O3:10WO3 glass structure for the luminescence performance of doped Eu3+. The most intense luminescence peak observed at 612 nm and the high integrated emission intensity ratio (R) of the 5D07F2/5D07F1 transitions at 612 and 590 nm of 5.77 suggest that the glasses are potential materials for red emission. The results are compared to measurements of a glass without WO3 addition (50ZnO:50B2O3:5Eu2O3) and results from other publications of similar glasses.
