Abstract

151Eu Mossbauer spectrum of IR-transmitting calcium aluminate glass, 60CaO·32Al2O3·5Fe2O3·3Eu2O3, consists of a broad peak due to distorted Eu(III) with δ and Δ values of 0.91 and -2.02 mm-s-1, respectively. Debye temperatures (θ(D)) of 360 and 320 K were obtained from the temperature dependence of absorption area (A) and that of δ, respectively. These θ(D) values indicate that Eu(III) atoms occupy substitutional sites of distorted Al(III)O4 tetrahedra in calcium aluminate glass. The δ value of 0.62 mm/s obtained from the heat-treated sample (glass ceramic) indicates that Eu(III)-O bonds became less covalent. A smaller Δ value of -1.20 mm-s-1 was obtained for Eu(III) in the glass ceramic, indicating less distorted Eu(III)O4 tetrahedra.
