In this letter, Eu2+-activated MO-B2O3 (M=Ca, Sr, and Ba) glasses are prepared in reductive atmosphere and their long lasting phosphorescence properties are studied. The intensity of the phosphorescence for the glasses is Sr>Ca>Ba. The light-induced electron paramagnetic resonance signal is observed after the irradiation of an ultraviolet lamp, which is due to the electron trapped by oxygen vacancy. The energy depth of the glasses is calculated using Hoogenstraaten's method.
