Zirconium effect on Sodium Borate Glasses

Authors(1) :-Susheela K. Lenkennavar

Zirconium oxide incorporated sodium borate glasses were prepared. Samples were analysed using certain measurements like XRD and UV-Vis. Few parameters like density, molar volume, polarizability and refractive index were calculated and reported. XRD confirms amorphous nature of all samples. UV-Vis spectra evidences that after 1mol% incorporation in sodium borate glass there exist a 3F2 - 3P1 transition due to Zr2+ ions. Further the Taucís plots were done for all samples and energy band gap values are tabulated and discussed in detail.
