Bulk and thin-blown films of barium-borosilicate glass were prepared and their electrical conduction properties at high and low fields were measured as functions of temperature. The electrical conductivity is an exponential function of inverse temperature at high temperatures with an activation energy in the range 1.0 to 1.4 eV, depending on composition. The conduction process is believed to involve polarons hopping in the adiabatic regime. Some high-field electroforming effects are observed.
