Spectroscopic studies of Er3+/Yb3+ co-doped (Ba,La)-fluorotellurite glass composition have been carried out using standard experimental and theoretical methods. Quantitative analyses of the room temperature absorption and emission spectra as well as the emission lifetimes yield various important spectroscopic parameters such as the radiative decay rates, fluorescence branching ratios, and emission/absorption cross sections. In addition, internal radiative quantum yields have been determined for the infrared emission at 1571 nm and for the upconversion emission at 547 nm. The influence of various non-radiative properties such as multiphonon relaxation, concentration quenching, and quenching by hydroxyl radicals have also been quantitatively estimated and correlated with the observed spectral properties. The comparative studies with the other composition of tellurite and different glasses showed that present glass composition could be a potential candidate for the broadband amplifier.
