The material under investigation was tellurite glass based composition of (89.6-x)TeO2-10MgO-(x)Sm2O3-0.4AgCl with 0.2 ≤ x ≤ 1.2 mol% glass system. The glass samples have been synthesised by a conventional melt quenching technique. The amorphous nature has been verified by X-ray diffraction pattern. The effect of samarium doping on the structural properties of glass system was performed by FTIR and Raman spectroscopy. Analysis of FTIR and Raman spectroscopy indicated the presence of three main bands attributed to the structural units, [TeO4] tbp, [TeO3+1] polyhedral, and [TeO3] tp. The substitution of samarium ion, Sm3+ at different concentration in the glass structure led to the appearance of overlapping band and shifting of wavenumber. This demonstrated that, Sm3+ significantly transformed [TeO4] tbp to [TeO3] tp through [TeO3+1] polyhedral. The structural change was discussed in terms of formation of bridging oxygen (BO) and non-bridging oxygen (NBO) with respect to glass composition. The formation of NBO was responsible to decrease the connectivity of the tellurite glass former network.
