Article Preview

The modification of absorption characteristics in rare-earth doped tellurite glasses is important in photonics application. The Er3+/Nd3+ doped glasses of the form (69-x)TeO2–15Li2CO3–15Nb2O5–1Er2O3 -(x)Nd2O3 with x =0.2 and 0.6 mol% are successfully made by using conventional melt-quenching technique. The Judd-Ofelt analysis is to determine the local structure and bonding in the vicinity of rare-earth ions. The oscillator strengths are calculated from the absorption spectra and used to evaluate Judd-Ofelt intensity parameters (Ωλ, λ=2, 4 and 6). The values of Ω4 and Ω6 change with the increase of Nd3+ concentration is ascribed to the change in glass network structures. The values of Ω2 are increased from 1.53 to 37.13 (10-22) cm2 with the increase of Nd3+ concentration which indicate an increase in the covalent nature of Nd-O bond and less centrosymmetrical the ion sites. The decrease in τrad for each level with the increase of Nd3+ concentration signifies on how fast a particular level gets depopulated. The values of β for the transitions 4G5/2, 2G7/24I9/2, 2H11/24I9/2 and 4F9/24I9/2 are found to lie in between 99.6 to 100.0%.
