Abstract: The mechanical properties of spodumene-diopside glasses ceramics with 4-12% TiO2 were investigated. The main crystalline phases precipitated were eucryptite, β-spodumene and diopside. As TiO2 content increasing, the morphology of glass ceramics transformed from coarse to fine microstructure, then to reverse. The flexural strength, elastic moduli, Vickers hardness and fracture toughness of the glass-ceramics were measured. The flexural strength of glass–ceramics containing 9%TiO2 was 198MPa, the Young’s modulus and fracture toughness were 91.3GPa and 2.3 MPa·m1/2 respectively. It was indicated that the mechanical properties were correlated with crystallization and morphology of glass ceramics

Abstract: By means of SEM, the micro-morphology of silver particles separated from borosilicate glass by the heat-treatment with an electric field is investigated. The distribution of the silver particles appears clusters. This result is explained by an energy viewpoint. Based on hermodynamics theory of phase separation, the calculation of the free energy change during the heat-treatment in an electric field is performed by means of the Ansoft Maxwell software. The results of this calculation analysis are found to be very close to the experimental data.

Abstract: The nucleation and crystallization kinetics of glass obtained by melting coal fly ash with additives at 1550°C have been investigated. The optimum heat treatment schedule for the glass was nucleation at 825°C for 60min before crystallization at 962°C for 4h. The activation energy for crystallization of the glass-ceramics, obtained by the DDTA result, was 280.03 kJ/mol, lower than that of glass-ceramics obtained from pure reagents. The low activation energy is caused by impurities in fly ash, serving as nucleation agent. The results of XRD and SEM show that glass-ceramics developed nano-sized spherical wollastonite.

Abstract: LiNO3-doped TiO2 thin films on glass-ceramics were prepared by sol-gel dip coating. The influence of LiNO3 addition on the phase transformation temperature was studied. The transformation temperatures of non-crystalline to anatase and anatase to rutile are originally 520°C and 880°C without the addition of LiNO3. By adding 5%LiNO3 the two transformation temperatures decrease to 440°C and 580°C, respectively. The average size of the particles was found to be around 40nm for the LiNO3- doped TiO2 film annealed at 600°C.
