Praseodymium (Pr3+) doped zinc fluoroborate glasses with the chemical composition [(mol %) 30 ZnF2 – 20 TeO2 – (50 - x) B2O3 – x Pr6O11] (where x = 0.0, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mol %) have been prepared by conventional melt quenching technique. The physical and optical parameters like density, refractive index, molar volume, and oscillator strength of these glasses were calculated as a function of dopant concentration. The densities and refractive indices of these glasses were found to be in the range 2 g/cm3 - 2.67 g/cm3 and 1.644 – 1.73 respectively. Stability of glass doped with 1 mol % of Pr3+ was found to be 120.
