Melt quenching is used to make borate glasses with Li2O and a set concentration of the heavy metal oxide Bi2O3. The impact of Li2O on borobismuthate glasses has been investigated. Glass density increases somewhat as Li2O content increases, although molar volume and glass transition temperature decrease. Infrared spectroscopy was utilised to investigate the structural properties of these glasses in the 400 to 4000 cm1 range. Bi3+cations are included in the glass structure as (BiO6) octahedral units, while boron ions are … Continue reading “Research on Effect of Li2O on the Properties of Bismuth Borate Glasses”
