Er3+ doped tellurite glasses with various Na2O/Li2O, Na2O/K2O and K2O/Li2O ratios were prepared. Absorption and emission spectra, glass transition temperatures, crystallization temperatures, densities, and refractive index of these glass samples were characterized. For all studied glass samples, the highest effective linewidth was obtained with mixed alkali molar ratio of Na2O/Li2O = 1, Na2O/K2O = 1 and K2O/Li2O = 1. The studied glasses have a (Tx-Tg) exceeding 100 °C, indicating these glass samples are stable against devitrification. In addition, Judd-Ofelt analysis of several glasses was also performed.
