Surface Analysis of Glass by Charged Particle Analysis
Properties of glass such as chemical durability, strength and erosion resistance are determined, in part, by its surface character. This paper deals with one means of characterizing the glass surface chemical constitution by using charged particle techniques. The purpose of this study of glass surfaces was to understand certain cases of failure occurring in glass containers after extended periods of time of exposure to corrosive environments and internal pressure.
