Paper Abstract

Alkali phosphate, phosphate-silicate, and phosphate-germanate glasses were studied by means of high-temperature acoustics and Rayleigh-Mandelstam-Brillouin (RMBS) and Raman scattering (RS) spectroscopies. Temperature-temporal dependences of the ultrasound velocity in the glass melts were measured at temperatures up to 1550°C. From the RMBS spectra the Landau-Placzek ratio and frequency shifts were found. A theory of the fluctuations fieezing at the cooling of the glass melt was applied to separate the contributions of the frozen-in density and concentration fluctuations to the Rayleigh scattering losses. A comparison was drawn with the losses in silica glass. The RS spectra allowed the identification of the constant-stoichiometry groups. The feasibility of the system xNa2O-(40 - x)K20-30Al203-30P205 for the fabrication of low-scattering glasses was ascertained.
