The Interrelation between Electrical Conductivity and The Viscosity of Glasses

  • Rudol’f L. Myuller


There is no direct regular physical connection of Walden’s type between the electrocon-ductivity k and viscosity η of glass [1]. The known relation ϰn η = C (where n and C are constants independent of temperature [2]) can, according to Frenkel’ [3], be reduced to the relation
, where Eη(T) is the activation energy of flow [4] and ΨΦ((T) is the ion-dissociation energy, to a first approximation.
