The transmission and fluorescence spectra of Yb3+ doped Bi2O3-3B2O3 glass were measured. The emission cross section have been evaluated using the measured absorption spectra and principle of reciprocity. The measured long lifetime τm (1.0 ms) and large emission cross section σem (1.423 pm2) indicate that Yb3+ doped Bi2O3-3B2O3 glass is a promising laser material.
