A high optical quality Rhodamine 6G doped low melting temperature fluorophosphate glass was obtained. The glass transition temperature, crystallization temperature, melting temperature, refractive index, and chemical durability in the water were examined. The absorption spectra, excitation spectra, and emission spectra of the Rhodamine 6G in the low melting temperature fluorophosphate glasses were investigated. The effect of melting time of Rhodamine 6G in the glass on the spectral properties was investigated. The results indicate that this low melting temperature glass is a promising host for laser dyes. The aggregation and degradation of Rhodamine 6G were significantly diminished in this low melting temperature glass.
