    Persistent luminescence (PeL) was obtained, from the first time to the best of our knowledge, from borosilicate bulk glasses. The glasses were prepared using direct doping method. Commercial PeL SrAl2O4:Eu2+,Dy3+ microparticles (MPs) were added in the borosilicate glass after melting. The persistent luminescence can be augmented when casting the glass 3 min after adding the MPs at 950 °C. Although the borosilicate glasses exhibit persistent luminescence, the glass melt has a corrosive behavior on the MPs leading to the diffusion of Al and Sr into the glasses.
