The Use of Laser Raman Spectroscopy in the Study of the Formation of Oxide Glasses

Laser Raman Spectroscopy (LRS), which has been found to be a powerful tool in the study of the structure of glasses (1, 2, 3), has been used to investigate the process of the formation of glassy material from batch components. The model glass system which is considered in this paper is a 30K20.70SiO2 (molar composition) glass, formed from a batch containing 30 mole percent K2CO3 and 70 mole percent SiO2, (quartz). Raman spectra were recorded of samples taken from the incompletely reacted batches. Glassy and crystalline intermediate products were identified by the well-known “finger print” method.
