Paper Title:
Optical Properties of Lead Glass Doped with CdS/Se Compound
  Abstract

Lead-based glass samples were fabricated in a laboratory scale using quartz sands that was a by-product of feldspar floatation in Tak Province, northern Thailand, and 20-wt% commercial-grade PbO as the main compositions. A CdS/Se compound of ratios ranging from 1:1 to 1:10 was doped into the glass mixture. The dried powders were well mixed in a ceramic crucible before being melted in an electric furnace at a maximum temperature of 1100°C for 4 hours. Transparent and bubble-free glass samples were resulted after cooling down to room temperature. It was found that the glass colors were changed from colorless to reddish brown by the addition of CdS/Se compound. Physical properties of the samples, such as, color, specific gravity, and refractive index were studied. Specific gravity and refractive index increased with increasing ratio of CdS/Se. UV-VIS-NIR spectra were measured and discussed.
