Title

Internal Friction of Glasses with Low Water Contents

Abstract

Internal friction was measured for NaPO3 glasses containing from 0.0004 to 0.146 wt% H2O. In glasses containing ≤ 0.001 wt% H2O, the only internal friction peak observed was that resulting from the Na+ ions, i.e. the alkali peak; it was ~ 30% larger than in as-melted glasses. The second peak normally observed in as-melted NaPO3 glass was completely absent when the water content was < 0.001 wt%, consistent with the interpretation that it is caused by a reorientation of proton-Na+ elastic dipoles. The concept that the second peak in as-melted alkali phosphate and silicate glasses results from nonbridging oxygen ions is not substantiated by these studies of NaPO3 glasses, which contain a high percentage of these ions but do not exhibit this peak when the proton concentration is sufficiently low.
