This study reveals the effect of PbF2 and CdF2 addition on the aluminosilicate oxyfluoride glass network over a wide compositional range. The structure of glasses in SiO2-Al 2O3-PbF2 and SiO2-Al 2O3-PbF2-CdF2 system matrices was studied by using DTA, XRD, UV-VIS, density, Raman and FTIR spectroscopy. The observed shifts of absorption edge due to band gap variations with heavy metal fluoride (HMF) addition are compared with theoretical model of optical basicity and physical parameters derived from density. The variation in Tg, and stability factor are supported by Raman and FTIR results which show formation of NBOs and other super structural units with addition of HMF in the aluminosilicate network. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Abstract

This study reveals the effect of PbF2 and CdF2 addition on the aluminosilicate oxyfluoride glass network over a wide compositional range. The structure of glasses in SiO2-Al 2O3-PbF2 and SiO2-Al 2O3-PbF2-CdF2 system matrices was studied by using DTA, XRD, UV-VIS, density, Raman and FTIR spectroscopy. The observed shifts of absorption edge due to band gap variations with heavy metal fluoride (HMF) addition are compared with theoretical model of optical basicity and physical parameters derived from density. The variation in Tg, and stability factor are supported by Raman and FTIR results which show formation of NBOs and other super structural units with addition of HMF in the aluminosilicate network. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.
