Objectives: To investigate the effect of B2O3 replaced by Nd2O3 studies on the spectroscopic characteristics of trivalent neodymium (Nd3+)-doped glasses using XRD, FTIR, absorption, and emission spectroscopy. Methods: The glasses were synthesized using the conventional melt quenching technique at 11500 C. The amorphous nature of the samples was confirmed by x-ray diffraction studies. Findings: The addition of Nd2O3 concentration affects the absorption and emission properties of the Nd3+ ion measured in the near-infrared luminescence range from 0.9mm, 1.06 mm, and 1.36mm associated with the 4F3=2!4IJ (J = 9/2, 11/2, 13/2) transitions. Novelty: The novelty of the present work is to fully understand and characterize the luminescence of Nd3+ doped borate bulk glasses with different doping concentrations. So as to gain an insight of 1.06 mm corresponding to 4F3=2!4F11=2 transition, these glasses are highly potential one which is an applicable to NIR emitting solid state device.
