Paper Abstract

The entire reaction processes of the synthesizing technologies of ZrF4 synthesized from ZrO2 as the raw material and NH4HF2 as fluorinating agent were studied in considerable detail, and the produce of an analytical reagent ZrF4 was prepared. The glasses of a series of ZBLAN with and without rare-earth ions were fabricated using the self-prepared starting materials. The phenomena of the cloud-sheets in the glass sample and the cricoid arenaceous bands generated in the glass surface layer were analyzed, and the resolving phenomena measures were pointed out. The glass-forming ability is analyzed by the (Delta) T or HR parameter measured in the experiment.
