Glass samples with compositional formula ZPBBCR: xZnF2-(25-x)PbF2-25Bi2O3- 49.8B2O3-0.2Cr2O3 (where x= 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25) have been prepared by adopting melt quenching technique. To study the structural information and optical features of the prepared glass system XRD, UV-visible absorption was performed on the synthesized glass batch. With the help of absorption spectra, optical parameters such as absorption coefficient, transmittance, refractive index, extinction coefficient, skin depth, optical density, optical conductivity and dielectric constants (real and imaginary) were evaluated. By analysing these optical characteristics of the prepared glass system, it is intended to extend their possible applications in the field of optical devices.
