Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and optical absorption studies have been carried out for VO2+ ions in calcium aluminoborate glasses. The EPR spectra of all the glass samples exhibit resonance signals, characteristic of VO2+ ions. The values of spin-Hamiltonian parameters indicate that the VO2+ ions in calcium aluminoborate glasses were present in octahedral co-ordination with a tetragonal compression and belong to C-4v symmetry. The number of spins (N) participating in resonance was calculated as a function of concentration as well as temperature. It is observed that variation of N with temperature obeys the Boltzmann law. From the EPR data, the paramagnetic susceptibility (X) is calculated at various temperatures and the Curie constant (C) was evaluated from the 1/(chi)-T graph. The Fermi contact interaction parameter (k), dipolar hyperfine coupling parameter (P) have been calculated and these values are found to be independent of V2O5 content and temperature. The optical absorption spectrum exhibits two bands corresponding to the d-d transition B-2(2g) -> E-2(g) and B-2(2g) -> (2)A(lg) in the order of increasing energy. The theoretical values of optical basicity (Ahh) of the glasses have also been evaluated
