Abstract

“The critical cooling rate for glass formation for melts containing from 37.5 to 68.0 mol % Ga2O3 varied from 310 ± 80°C/s to 855 ± 115°C/s. The crystallization temperature, microhardness, UV and visible transmission were measured. The density increased from 4.075 g/cm3 at 37.5 3 mol % Ga2O3 to 4.402 g/cm3 at 56.0 mol % Ga2O3. The refractive index, nD, increased from 1.778 at 37.5 mol % Ga2O3 to 1.802 at 62.0 mol % Ga2O3. The IR spectra indicate that both GaO4 tetrahedra and GaO6 octahedra are present in these glasses”--Abstract, page 1.
