we focus the attention of the reader on their important optical, structural, and spectroscopic properties. Of particular interest is the role of tin-dioxide-based glass ceramics as effective sensitizers of the RE ions luminescence. Novel spectroscopic results regarding the Er-activated SiO2-SnO2 system are also presented with a discussion about the different possible structures of integrated optics. The differences between the top-down and bottom-up fabrication techniques are presented, as well as some well-consolidated results about the transparent glass ceramics doped with RE ions. In this regard, it is worthy to note the results obtained in a hybrid glass-ceramic fabricated employing an amorphous matrix SiO2-HfO2 loaded by nanoparticles of lithium lanthanum tetraphosphates doped with different concentration of Eu3+ ions. Finally, we conclude the chapter with the perspectives of glass materials for integrated optics.
