Ultrasonic velocities and absorption measurements in sodium borate glasses containing Na2O have been made using the pulse echo technique at 4, 5 and 6 MHz. Results showed an increase in velocity as the sodium oxide content (mol%) increased. The ultrasonic absorption results showed the presence of very high and well-defined peak which shifts its position to lower temperatures with increasing frequency. This suggests some sort of relaxation process and the activation energy of this process increased with increasing Na2O concentration (mol%). The infrared absorption spectra of sodium borate glasses confirmed the results obtained by ultrasonic investigations.
