Functionally glass materials have been widely applied in various technological applications remarkably due to their optoelectric properties. In this present study, the glass was prepared from leaching product of local silica sands. Bi2O3 and Na2CO3 were added to reduce the melting point of silica sand to form silica glass and Fe2O3/B2O3 was incorporated to examine its effect on the crystal structure, morphology, and light-induced dielectric properties of the borosilicate-based fuctional glass. The characterizations were conducted by means of Differential Thermal Analyses (DTA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and capacitance meter under the influence of light intensity. The XRD pattern shows the absence of any sharp diffraction peak indicates the amorphous state of the borosilicate glass. While the SEM image shows that the borosilicate glass exhibited amorphous characteristic. Furthermore, the increasing of Fe2O3 tends to reduce the dielectric constant. On the other hand, the increase of light intensity increase the dielectric constant with a step like properties.
