Abstract: When a voltage in the direction opposite to that for anodic bonding is applied to an anodically-bonded joint of glass whose alkali ion content is substituted by silver, silver precipitates of peculiar morphology form in the glass adjacent to the joint interface. In order to acquire knowledge about factors that control the configuration of the precipitates, effects of bonding time of the joints and application temperature of the reverse voltage on morphology of the precipitates were investigated. Shortening of the bonding time and increase of the application temperature of the reverse voltage cause decrease of the size of precipitates, and these effects were explained from formation frequency of current paths in the Ag+ depletion layer with penetration of Ag+ ions into the layer.

Abstract: This Borosilicate glass offers superior properties to the ordinary silicate glass. Metallic quantum dots embedded in glass are promising materials which can be used in modern optical devices. However, the introduction of metallic quantum dots into borosilicate glass has not been studied. We investigated the formation of copper quantum dots in Cu-doped borosilicate glass matrix using thermal annealing process. The reductant SnO included in borosilicate glass played an important role in the formation of the metallic quantum dots. Specifically, Cu quantum dots were formed only when SnO content reached at least 0.5 wt% after borosilicate glass was heated at 600 °C for 60min, which was evidenced by the detection of the characteristic absorption band at about 560nm originated from the surface plasmon resonance of Cu nanoparticles. The optimal concentration of SnO was found to be 1.5 wt% and the mean size for the heating-induced Cu quantum dots was calculated to be ~1.7 nm. Our data offer a simple approach to prepare the metallic quantum dots in borosilicate glass matrix and suggest a new type of metallic quantum dots for applications where superior durability, chemical and heat resistance are required.

Abstract: With the development of ultra high temperature rigid heat insulation materials in the space field, it is an important strategic significance to prepare and research insulation materials of 1500°C high temperature. In our paper, the material was achieved through the process of wet suction filter forming and high temperature heat treatment, during which the high temperature alumina fiber was used as main ingredient. The fiber binder directly influences the mechanical and thermal properties of the material, and our samples were prepared using boron carbide and silicon carbide (both), borosilicate glass, alumina sol and aluminum dihydrogen phosphate as binder, respectively. The results show that borosilicate glass was the best one. Coefficient of thermal conductivity at 1000°C, lift strength and plane direction compression strength (10% compression) of the high temperature material were 0.12 W/mK, 0.35 MPa, and 1.1 MPa, respectively.

Abstract: For the purpose of investigating the effect of cutting edge truncation on ground surface morphology, several kinds of hard and brittle materials used for optical devices, borosilicate glass, glass quartz, crystal quartz and sapphire, are plunge ground with a SD600 metal-bonded grinding wheel, the cutting edges of which are truncated so as to be aligned with the height level of the grinding wheel working surface, after electrocontact discharge truing and dressing. It is found that an improvement of roughness can be obtained for every material investigated, although the degree of roughness improvement depends on the kind of material. Ductile-mode grinding is most likely to be realized in the case of crystal quartz.

Abstract: The relationship between structure and refractive index for SiO2-B2O3- Ta2O5-ZrO2-Na2O system glasses was investigated via Raman spectrum and V-block technology. The results showed that refractive index of the borosilicate glasses is mainly influenced by network structure such as planar [BO3] triangle, [BO4] tetrahedron and [SiO4] tetrahedron. Refractive index decreases from 1.629 to 1.616 when B2O3 content increases from 15 mol% to 50 mol%. Na2O component has a strong preference to provide non-bridging oxygen (NBO) atoms, which not only promotes the conversion of [BO3] to [BO4] unit but also depolymerizes the network structure. The refractive index has the highest value, =1.6264, when Na2O content reaches to 28 mol%. Both ZrO2 and Ta2O5 can promote structure formation of borosilicate glasses and make higher connection degree. However, the refractive index increasing with Ta2O5 addition is quicker than that with ZrO2 addition.

Abstract: A measuring cone made of borosilicate glass mounted in a flowmeter failed after a life¬time of only a few months. Therefore, a failure analysis was conducted which revealed that the reason for failure was a too high flow rate. The high flow rate made the float touch the upper float stop. When contacting the stop, the float started to rotate in an unstable manner and as a result was hitting and grinding along the inner cone wall which resulted in cracks, micro-chipped surface areas and grinding marks. One of the longitudinal cracks then grew subcritically till final failure occurred.

Abstract: Unlike the traditional silicate glasses, borosilicate glasses behave differently because of the addition of boron atoms. Extensive studies have been carried out to understand the abnormal function of boron in glass network. However, it is not clear how the atomic structure of borosilicate glass changes under loading. This paper investigates the behaviour of borosilicate glass under uniaxial compression with the aid of ab initio simulations. Sodium borosilicate glass having 160 atoms and a mass density of 2.51 g/cm3 with composition 3Na2O-B2O3-6SiO2 were equilibrated first at 3500K, then at 2500K, 1500K, 1200K, 1000K, 825K and 625K. Structural analysis showed that at higher temperatures the sodium borosilicate liquid does not have a specific structure. At around 825 K (i.e. around Tg), boron network and silicon network form and remain stable even at a temperature of 625 K. When the supercooled sample at 825K was subjected to uniaxial compression, the stress along the compression direction first increases and then decreases with a change in boron structure, which could modify the behaviour of the borosilicate glass.

It is based on Stookey’s mixed fluoride sodium glass system for us to adopt, design prescriptions on the basis of SiO2-Na2O-Al2O3-ZnO for the glass main component and a series of glass doped with CeO2, AgNO3 and NaF etc. melted at about 1450 °C, and the glass have good optical property (homogeneity, without bubble and stripe, high transparency). The borosilicate glass was exposed by ultraviolet light, and then after the heat treatment of the sample, the measurement of ultraviolet-visible-near infrared absorption spectrum and the X ray diffraction of exposure part was performed.

Abstract: Oxidization of diamond in the sintering process of diamond/borosilicate glass composites would result in low compressive fracture strength (CFS) of the grit and uncontrolled expansion with many irregular pores in the composites, causing low bending strength of the tools. In this paper diamond/borosilicate glass composites were prepared by cold pressing and sintering at 850 C for 120 min in air. An active element Zn was incorporated into the composites in order to resolve the above issues. The effects of Zn contents on the properties of the composites was investigated by the bending strength tests, the volume expansion rate tests, differential scanning calorimeter test (DSC), thermogravimetry (TG), X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results showed Zn was oxidized and then converted to ZnAl2O4 and Zn2SiO4 phases during sintering. The bending strength improved and the expansion phenomenon was inhibited for the composites with various Zn additions. The maximum bending strength and minimum volume expansion rate were obtained for the composite GZ8. This Zn content resulted in a decrease of volume expansion rate from 8.57% to -20.53%, and an increase in bending strength from 28.49 MPa to 74.02 MPa compared with the composite GZ0. The CFS results of the diamond grits separated from GZ0 and GZ8 was 21N and 26N, respectively.
