Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 9)


The a.c. dielectric response of alkali silicate glasses is examined on the basis of a one-dimensional finite chain model. The relaxation modes and relaxation strength for this model are developed. A distribution function related simply to the structural properties of the glass is proposed and used to calculate the dielectric loss of the glass. Theoretical and experimental results are discussed and compared.
