Abstract

A series of undoped borate glasses: Li2B4O7, LiKB4O7, LiB3O5, SrB4O7, and LiCaBO3 of high optical quality and chemical purity were obtained from the corresponding polycrystalline compounds using standard glass synthesis under technological conditions developed by the authors. The glasses were obtained by rapid cooling of molten crystalline material, which was heated to 100 K above the melting point to prevent crystallization and to exceed the glass transition point. The X-ray diffraction intensity profiles of the investigated glasses were typical of glassy compounds. The most typical intensity profile, consisting of almost symmetrical peaks, was observed in the case of Li2B4O7 and LiB3O5. Substitution and partial substitution of Li atoms by Sr and Ca atoms was accompanied by significant changes in the intensity profiles of the investigated glasses. Pair correlation functions and structural parameters (average interatomic distances and coordination number to oxygen) of the investigated glasses were evaluated and analyzed. Structural peculiarities of the investigated borate glasses are discussed in comparison with structural data available for their crystalline analogs.
