The application of La2O3 has been well established since La2O3 has been used in in dielectric layers, optical coating, and capacitor additive, but they uses majorly A-type structure as it has a better crystalline nature, better temperature stability, higher dielectric constant, and lower leakage current.

Optical glass with addition of La2O3 provide higher visible region and the optical bandgap.

Barium strontium titanite glass–ceramics(BST) is one of the candidates to achieve high energy-storage density. The addition of La2O3 during the BST formation with melting method improve breakdown strength and energy-storage density significantly.
