In this work, glass compositions in the system NaPO3 - Sb2O3 - CuO (PSbCu) containing different concentrations of CuO and Sb2O3 were prepared through the melt - quenching methodology. Thermal, structural and optical properties of the PSbCu glasses were systematically studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Raman, UV-Visible and Photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopies, besides electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) measurements. The DSC curves for all samples presented the glass transition phenomenon (T-g), while the XRD patterns showed the presence of an amorphous halo, which confirmed the glassy nature of all samples analyzed. UV-Vis spectra of the glasses showed a transparent window from 450 to 800 nm. The EPR signals intensities were investigated as a function of the copper concentration and Sb2O3 content in the (PySb0.5Cu) (20 <= y <= 80) and (PSb80xCu) (0.25 <= x <= 1.25) glasses. The EPR results showed that the increase of Sb2O3 concentration on the PySb0.5Cu glasses decreased the Cu2+ signals, which suggests the Sb3+ oxidizing to Sb5+, also transferring electrons to Cu2+ species to create the EPR a silent Cu+ specie. According to EPR parameters and PL spectra (excited at 380 nm) of PySb0.5Cu glasses, the ions Cu2+ ions were preferentially found in a distorted octahedral geometry, while Cu+ is in a square planar geometry according to the Jahn-Teller effect.
