Effects of B2O3 Contents on Crystallization Behaviors and Dielectric Properties of CaO-B2O3-SiO2 Glass Ceramics


Article Preview

The CaO-B2O3-SiO2 glass ceramics system with four different boron contents (14 wt. %, 16.4 wt. %, 18.6 wt. %, 21 wt. %) were prepared under 900oC. The properties and microstructures are characterized by Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The effects of boron contents on the composition of crystalline phases and the properties of CaO-B2O3-SiO2 glass ceramics system were studied. The results show that when the molar ratio of CaO/SiO2 is 1.06, as the content of B2O3 increases, the major crystalline phases experiences the transformation from CaSiO3 to CaB2O4 and the content of α-SiO2 crystalline phase decreases, and the dielectric constant increases firstly but it decreases after the content of B2O3 reaches to 18.6 wt. %, while the dielectric loss tgδ of decreases gradually with the addition of boron content. When the content of B2O3 is 16.4 wt. %, the CaO-B2O3-SiO2 glass ceramics with a bulk density of 2.47 g/cm3 exhibits good dielectric properties (1 MHz): εr=6.03, tgδ=3.49×10-3.
