Structure of Chalcogenide Glasses

  • Norbert J. Kreidl
  • Werner Ratzenboeck

Abstract

When group V and IV elements are added to group VI elements, glasses are formed in which structural groups V VI3/2 and IV VI4/2 modify and replace their chain and ring structures. In the resulting binary and polynary systems atomic structure and microstructure can be correlated with properties of increasing technological significance. Threshold and memory switchingdiode, photocopy, acousto-optical and infrared optical devices are based on these properties. The increase in softening temperature attainable by the incorporation of V-VI structures and micro structures is particularly promising for the design of temperature-stable infrared-transmitting materials.
