Paper Title:
Effect of Nd3+ Concentration on the Physical and Absorption Properties of Soda-Lime-Silicate Glasses
  Abstract

Series of multi-component glass systems of the following chemical composition SiO2-Na2O-CaO-Nd2O3 with an increasing of rare earth concentration, the effect of Nd2O3 on the optical properties of the glass systems is investigated. On the basis of the measure values of densities and refraction, Nd3+ ion concentration in glasses and several other physical properties were determined. The absorption coefficient, both direct and indirect optical energy gaps, and Urbach energy are evaluated using the absorption edge calculations. The different factors that play a role for controlling the refractive indices such as electronic polarizability, bridging and non-bridging oxygen, and optical basicity are discussed in accordance with the obtained index data. The non-crystalline phase identified basing on X-ray diffraction analysis.
