The glass-forming region of P2O5-Al2O3-B2O3-ZnO-Na2O-CuCl system with different Al2O3 and B2O3 contents was studied. The dependence of glasses properties on B/(B+Al) ratio was investigated. The absorption coefficient of copper ion in a specific glass was measured. These results are very helpful to the designing of a cladding glass for large size neodymium phosphate glass.
