Optical and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopies have been used to investigate the coordination number and site symmetry of Co2+ in a heavy metal fluoride glass. From EPR microwave saturation measurements, the zero field splitting of the Co2+ ion doped into a ZBL glass was determined. It was deduced from this that the Co2+ resides in a site of cubic symmetry.
