1 October 1990 Short-range structure of fluorine-modified phosphate glass
Author Affiliations +
Raman and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy are used to characterize the effects of fluorine incorporation on the short range structures of several simple phosphate glasses. Fluorine depolymerizes the chain structure of NaPO3 by replacing bridging POP bonds with terminal PF species. In aluminophosphate glasses with small fluorine contents fluorine is primarily associated with aluminum. When the fluorine to aluminum ratio exceeds three the number of Al-F bonds are maximized and significant numbers of P-F bonds form. 2.
