The Vibrational Analysis of Boron in Vitreous Silica

  • Carlyle F. Smith
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 12)


Glasses containing small amounts of boron in a silicon dioxide matrix are commercially important for their high use temperatures, low thermal expansivity, and resistance to devitrification. This study was undertaken to elucidate the coordination of boron in such glasses by recording and analyzing the infrared (IR) and Raman (R) spectral details that appear as a result of the incorporation of small amounts of boron.
