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= 0.4, 0.8 and 1.0 mol % are successfully made by using conventional melt-quenching technique. Physical properties such as polaron radius, interionic distance, field strength and average distance between acceptors and donors are determined. The absorption spectra reveal eleven prominent peaks centered at 6535.9 cm-1, 10245.9 cm-1, 11415.5 cm-1, 12437.8 cm-1, 13369.0 cm-1, 15267.2 cm-1, 15949.2 cm-1, 17127.1 cm-1, 19084.0 cm-1, 20449.9 cm-1 and 22271.7 cm-1 which corresponding to the transitions from ground state to various states of Nd3+ ions. The crystal field site increases from 8.120 to 8.169 cm-1 due to increase in contraction of Nd3+-ligand. The nephelauxetic function, increase 0.104 to 0.107. The increasing in value describes, the increasing in ionic bond from-0.0004 to-0.0011. The increment in exhibits the increase in the number of effective positive charge connected to neodymium atom and attracts the electrons from ligands as it increases from 1.0004 to 1.0011. These present glass shows the potential candidate of broadband amplifiers and lasers as it is comparable with other Nd3+ doped another host.
