Structural Features of Hafnium Iron Phosphate Glasses
Structural features and properties of a series of hafnium iron phosphate glasses have been investigated by Mössbauer spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. Mössbauer spectra indicate that all of the glasses contain both Fe(II) and Fe(III) ions. The isomer shift values obtained from the Mössbauer fits show that both Fe(II) and Fe(III) ions are in octahedral or distorted octahedral coordination. The crystalline HfP2O7 phase was detected in all the samples by powder X-ray diffraction but this did not degrade the chemical durability of the glasses as the dissolution rates of the glasses are comparable to that of base iron phosphate glass.
