Glass formation domains and structural properties of nonconventional transition metal ion glasses

Seminar On “Recent Trends In Glass And Glass-Ceramics Research”


Glass formation domains and structural properties of some binary transition metal ion glasses based on nonconventional network formers Bi2O3 and PbO have been investigated. With the same network former, the glass formation domains depend on the transition metal ions. Homogeneous glasses with random network structure were obtained, as evidenced by the composition dependent density, molar volume and glass transition temperatures. Significant information about possible structural units in these glasses has been obtained from the IR spectra of these glasses.
