Structure of Cs2O-B2O3 glass and melts: The Raman spectroscopy data



The study continues a series of works of the authors dedicated to the investigation of the alkaliborate glass and melts, in order to determine the structure of samples of the xCs2O-(100 − x)B2O3 (x ≤ 40 mol %) composition in glassy, supercool, and molten conditions with the high-temperature Raman spectroscopy. The Raman spectra were analyzed to identify the type of structural units in glass and melts and the variation in structure depending on composition and temperature.
