Relation of Alkali Mobility and Mechanical Relaxation in Mixed-alkali Silicate Glasses
Internal friction and Na and K self-diffusion coefficients for (I-X)Na2OXK2O-3SiO2 glasses were measured. Alkali diffusion was measured between 300° and 500°C using radioactive isotopes and a thin-sectioning technique; internal friction was determined at room temperature to 500°C at 0.1 to 2000 Hz. Comparison of the data for alkali diffusion and internal friction in Na-K glasses with those for other mixed-alkali glasses shows that the mixed-alkali peak is related to alkali mobility. It is concluded that the mechanism of mixed-alkali internal friction is cooperative rearrangement of dissimilar alkali ions, with the slower-moving ion controlling the rate of reorientation.
