Abstract [en]

By combining molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with Si-29 and Al-27 magic-angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, we present a comprehensive structural report on rare-earth (RE) aluminosilicate (AS) glasses of the RE2O3-Al2O3-SiO2 (RE = Y, Lu) systems, where the latter is studied for the first time. The structural variations stemming from changes in the glass composition within each RE system as well as the effects of the increased cation field-strength (CFS) of Lu3+ relative to Y3+-are explored and correlated to measured physical properties, such as density, molar volume, glass transition temperature, and Vickers hardness (H-V). Si-29 NMR reveals a pronounced network ordering for an increase in either the RE or Al content of the glass. Al mainly assumes tetrahedral coordination, but significant AlO5 and AlO6 populations are present in all structures, with elevated amounts in the Lu-bearing glasses compared to their Y analogues. The MD-derived oxygen speciation comprises up to 3% of free O2- ions, as well as non-negligible amounts (4-19%) of O-[3] coordinations (oxygen triclusters). While the SiO4 groups mainly accommodate the nonbridging oxygen ions, a significant fraction thereof is located at the AlO4 tetrahedra, in contrast to the scenario of analogous alkali- and alkaline-earth metal-based AS glasses. The average coordination numbers (CNs) of Al and RE progressively increase for decreasing Si content of the glass, with the average CN of the RE3+ ions depending linearly on both the amount of Si and the fraction of AlO5 groups in the structure. The Vickers hardness correlates strongly with the average CN of Al, in turn dictated by the CFS and content of the RE3+ ions. This is to our knowledge the first structural rationalization of the well-known compositional dependence of H-V in RE bearing AS glasses.

Abstract [en]

Rare earth (RE) alumino-silicate (AS) glasses exhibit favorable physical, mechanical and optical properties, such as high values of the glass transition temperature, Vickers hardness, and refractive index. RE2O3-Al2O3-SiO2 glasses have found several industrial applications, for example as components of optical amplifiers and lasers. Many of these features stem from the high cation field-strength (CFS) of the trivalent RE ions (proportional to the valence of the ion divided by the square of its radius), which affects not only the physical properties of the glass, but also their structures.

This thesis deals with investigations of four different RE2O3-Al2O3-SiO2 systems, where RE represents either of La, Y, Lu or Sc. The glass forming regions of the latter two were reported by us for the first time. Within each system, glasses were prepared for variable RE, Si and Al contents.

The glass structures were investigated by solid-state 29Si and 27Al nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy that informs about the local Si and Al environments in the glass network, which is built from interlinked SiO4 and AlO4 groups. Higher Al coordination numbers were also revealed by 27Al NMR: their amounts were observed to increase markedly as the CFS of the RE ion increases, i.e., along the series La<Y<Lu<Sc. This thesis discusses such structure/composition relationships, as well as the correlations between the glass composition and its physical properties of density, molar volume, compactness, glass transition temperature, Vickers hardness and refractive index. Some of these properties, for example the glass transition temperature and Vickers hardness, were observed to enhance as the RE3+ CFS increased.
