In this paper, phosphate based glasses with persistent luminescence properties were processed using std. melting process in air by adding SrAl2O4:Eu2+,Dy3+ or CaAl2O4:Eu2+,Nd3+ in the glass batch before melting. All produced glasses were characterized using SEM/EDXA, Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence. We discuss the effect of melting conditions (temp. and duration of the melting) on the persistent luminescence properties of the microparticles contg. glasses. It is demonstrated that the melting in air allows for the prepn. of glasses with persistent luminescence if the melting conditions are carefully controlled.
