ABSTRACT Photosensitive glass-ceramics have been extensively studied in recent years in that it is an attractive high diffraction efficiency grating materials. It is based on Stookey’s mixed fluoride sodium glass system for us to adopt, design prescriptions on the basis of SiO2-Na2O-Al2O3-ZnO for the glass main component and a series of glass doped with CeO2, AgNO3 and NaF etc. melted at about 1450?C, and the glass have good optical property (homogeneity, without bubble and stripe, high transparency). The borosilicate glass was exposed by ultraviolet light, and then after the heat treatment of the sample, the measurement of ultraviolet-visible-near infrared absorption spectrum and the X ray diffraction of exposure part was performed.
