In the recent years a large research effort is being carried out to develop new or advanced glasses and the corresponding processes with the goal of implementing optoelectronic devices. Here we try to provide a brief review of the major improvements and of the recent trends in this area. Special attention is paid to the perspectives of sol-gel glasses, which can be doped in a relatively easy way with a large variety of active materials and are thus able to exhibit different functions, including light amplification and lasing.
