The optical absorption of high index glasses of the system TiO2-BaO-B2O3 prepared from the raw materials for an optical waveguide glass has been measured in the near ultraviolet region. The amount of Ti3+ in the glass could be reduced to a level less than 5 ppm by melting a batch added with pure nitric acid, using a fused quartz crucible in an oxygen gas atmosphere. The ultra-pure glass of 10mm thick prepared in such a way did not show any appreciable color even for the one containing 30 mol% TiO2 and having refractive index nD of 1.84 and Abbe's number vD of 28.8. The wavelength of ultraviolet absorptin edge was longer for the glass of higher index and higher dispersdion. The melting of a TiO2 containing glass in a platinum crucible resulted in a coloration of the glass due to the dissolved plutinum from the crucible, which was more intense for the one containing larger amount of TiO2.
