Nowadays, oxyfluoride glasses have received much attention from photonic researchers as they benefit from the advantages of both oxide and fluoride glasses (low phonon energy in parallel with high mechanical and chemical durability). The purppose of this paper was to study the different glass compositions in SiO2-Al2O3-K2O-BaF2 system and investigate the BaF2 effects on their crystallization behavior and structure. Therefore, various chemical compositions with different amounts of BaF2 (20, 30, and 40mol%) were chosen and melted in alumina crucibles at 1450˚C. The sample could not melt with the lowest percentage of BaF2. On the other hand, the glass composition containing the highest amount of BaF2 was not able to show high transparency due to the phase separation that occurred in it. Finally, the sample with a 30mole ratio of BaF2 was chosen as the optimized sample due to the favorable transparency. XRD patterns showed that the samples were amorphous and it somehow proved the low transparency in the presence of higher amounts of BaF2 arose from phase separation than the unwanted crystallization. According to the DTA results, the crystallization peak of the fluoride phase decreased from 693˚C to 678˚C by increasing the content of BaF2. FT-IR spectra approved the oxyfluoride structure of the glasses. Higher BaF2 content increased the absorption of peaks in FT-IR spectra since it results in a more discontinuous structure. Fluorine loss was higher for the glass containing the highest amount of BaF2 due to the lower amount of Al2O3 in its composition.

Viscosity and diffusion of barium and fluoride in Na2O/K2O/Al2O3/SiO2/BaF2 glasses

The interdiffusion coefficients of barium and fluoride in glasses, in the system Na2O/K2O/Al2O3/SiO2 with BaF2 additions, were determined from the diffusion profiles using energy dispersive X-ray analysis in a scanning electron microscope. The diffusivities were in agreement with Arrhenius-equation. Diffusion coefficients of fluoride were in the range from 4.5 10 15 m s 1 to 30 10 15 m s 1 at 5...
