Au nanoparticles doped Bismuth borate glass was prepared by melt quenching technique. X-ray diffraction confirms the amorphous behaviour of the samples prepared. The prepared sample were studied by using UV-VIS and Fourier Infrared spectroscopic techniques. Optical band gap was calculated from transmission spectra using Mott and Davis model.
