Ba-La-tellurite glasses doped with Yb3+ ions have been prepared through melt quenching technique by modifying their composition with the inclusion of varied concentration of Al2O3 to elucidate its effects on glass structural, elastic, thermal properties and Yb3+ ion NIR luminescence performance. The FTIR spectral analysis indicates Al2O3 addition is promoting the conversion of BOs from NBOs which have been generated during the process of depolymerisation of main glass forming TeO4 units. The elastic properties of the glass revealed an improved rigidity of the glass network on addition of Al2O3. In concurrence to this, differential thermal analysis showed an increase in glass transition temperature with improved thermal stability factor. Also, Yb3+ fluorescence dynamics demonstrated that, Al2O3 inclusion helps in restraining the detrimental radiation trapping of similar to 1 mu m emission. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
