ABSTRACT Quaternary tellurite glass systems of the form 80TeO2–5TiO2–(15−x)WO3−xAnOm where AnOm is Nb2O5, Nd2O3, and Er2O3, x=0.01, 1, 3, and 5mol% for Nb2O5 and x=0.01, 0.1, 1, 3, 5, and 7mol% for Nd2O3 and Er2O3, have been prepared by the melt quenching. Density and molar volumes have been measured and calculated for every glass system.
The thermal behavior of the glass series was studied by using the differential thermal analysis DSC. Glass transition temperature
g, crystallization temperature T
c, and the onset of crystallization temperature T

were determined. The glass stability against crystallization S (≈100°C) and glass-forming tendency K
g (≈0.3) have been calculated. Specific heat capacity C
p (≥1.4J/g°C) was measured from room temperature and above the T
g for every composition in each glass series. Quantitative analysis of the above thermal properties of these new tellurite
glass with the structure parameters like average cross-link density
$ \ifmmode\expandafter\bar\else\expandafter\=\fi{n}_{{\text{c}}} $ \ifmmode\expandafter\bar\else\expandafter\=\fi{n}_{{\text{c}}} (≥2.4), number of bonds per unit volume n
b (≥8×1028cm−3), and the average stretching force constant (F) have been studied for every glass composition.

    ABSTRACT: Structural, thermal, optical properties and simulation of white light of Dy3+-doped tellurite glasses of composition TTWD: (75 � x)TeO2 � 10TiO2 � 15WO3 � xDy2O3 (x = 0, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 mol%) were investigated. Raman spectra revealed that the glass contains TeO4, TeO3, WO4 and WO6 units. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements were carried out to measure the glass transition temperature of all the glasses. From the optical absorption spectra, luminescence spectra and using the Judd–Ofelt (JO) analysis, we estimated the radiative transition probabilities, emission cross-sections, branching ratios and radiative lifetimes. The decay curves at lower concentrations are exponential while they show a non-exponential behavior at higher concentrations (�0.5 mol%) due to energy transfer processes. The effective lifetime for the 4F9/2 level decreases with increase in Dy2O3 concentration for the glasses under investigation. The non-exponential decay curves could fit well to the Inokuti–Hirayama (IH) model with S = 6, indicating that the nature of interaction responsible for energy transfer is of dipole–dipole type. Simulation of white light is examined with varying concentration and the results indicate that these glasses are suitable for white light emitting diode applications.

    ABSTRACT: The zinc tellurite glasses (TZO) codoped with ${Eu}^{3+}{{–}} {Yb}^{3+}$ ions have been prepared by the conventional melt and quenching technique. The photoluminescence spectra of the glass samples have been measured under 976-nm CW diode laser excitation. Several upconversion emission bands ranging from the blue to near infrared region have been detected in the codoped samples. The sensitized cooperative energy transfer process from the ${Yb}^{3+}$ to ${Eu}^{3+}$ ions and cross-relaxation process has been found to be responsible mechanism for the upconversion emissions in ${Eu}^{3+}$ ions.

    ABSTRACT: Borotellurite (xB2O3–(100 − x)TeO2; x = 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 mol.%) and alumino-borotellurite (yAl2O3–10B2O3–(100 − y)TeO2; y = 5, 10, 20 and 30 mol.%) glasses are prepared and studied by X-ray diffraction, density, differential scanning calorimetry, thermo-gravimetric analysis, UV–visible, infrared and Raman spectroscopy. Borotellurite glasses are hygroscopic and on crushing into powder, they absorb atmospheric water vapors to form crystalline precipitates of TeO2 in an amorphous matrix; the chemical durability of these glasses deteriorates with increasing B2O3 concentration. The refractive index of borotellurite glasses decreases from 2.29 to 2.26 while the glass transition temperature increases from 339 to 366 °C with an increase in B2O3 mol.%. The short-range structure of glasses consists of TeO4, TeO3, BO4 and BO3 structural units. Using the ratio of the areas under TeO4/TeO3 and BO4/BO3 Raman and infrared bands respectively, the Te 2 3 2 3 2 3
