Lead borosilicate and bismuth borosilicate glasses with and without aluminium oxide of varying compositions were prepared by conventional melt-quench method. Raman spectroscopy was used to analyze the influence of Al2O3incorporation in the heavy metal oxide borosilicate glass network. The compositions of glasses were chosen in a way that Al2O3is added at expenses of PbO and Bi2O3in lead borosilicate and bismuth borosilicate glasses, respectively.
