Preparation, Techniques and Tools used for Investigating Glasses : An OverviewAuthor(s): Priya Murugasen, Suresh Sagadevan and Deepa Shajan
This paper describes preparation of glasses by melt quench method and experimental techniques employed in the characterization of glasses. Characterization techniques such as X-ray Diffraction technique (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR); thermal, UV analysis, microhardness and dielectric studies and fluorescence spectroscopy etc. is described in detail. In addition, thermal poling and Z-scan technique experimental methods are discussed in this paper.
