Glass has been widely utilized in the field of lighting, telecommunication and spectroscopy. Boro-tellurite is one of the suitable glasses used for solid state lighting and laser application. The investigation on the luminescence properties of rare earth doped ceramic is rarely used due to the opacity. In this paper borotellurite prepared in ceramic can show the better luminescence with the less advantage. The aim of this paper is to present the effect and advantages in luminescence results of boro-tellurite ceramics doped with the constant amount of rare earth. Doped magnesium boro-tellurite with Eu3+ and Dy3+ ceramic have been prepared using solid state reaction method with the compositions of xTeO2-(70-x)B2O3-30MgO with 10=x=40, and have been doped with Eu2O3 (1mol%) and Dy2O3 (1mol%) . The characterizations of the samples have been investigated by means of X-Ray diffraction, Raman, Infrared and Photoluminescence spectroscopy. From the X-ray diffraction results, two phases are assigned to MgTe2O5 and Mg2B2O5. Raman spectroscopy showed strong bands observed in the vicinity of 140, 175, 220, 266, 332, 403, 436, 646, 694, 723, 757 and 806 cm-1. FTIR spectra showed bands located in the range between 400-800 cm-1 are assigned to the bending mode of Te-O-Te, TeO3 and TeO4. In the range of 800-1400 cm-1, the bands are associated with B-O, B-O-B, BO3 and BO4 bonds. The emission transition5D0-7F2 corresponded to the red emission (612 nm) was found to be the most intense in all the Eu3+-doped magnesium boro-tellurite ceramics.
