Treść
Zinc borate glasses with different concentrations of Nb2O5 were prepared and later were heat treated for prolonged times. Prepared samples were characterized by XRD, SEM, DSC, IR and optical transmission spectroscopy techniques. Later, dielectric properties viz., dielectric constant, loss tangent, electric modulii, electrical impedance and a.c. conductivity over wide ranges of frequency and temperature, were investigated as a function of Nb2O5 concentration. Finally, the dielectric breakdown strength was measured in air medium at ambient temperature. The results of characterization techniques viz., XRD, SEM and DSC indicated that multiple crystal grains (with sizes varying from 0.1 to 1m) are dispersed in the residual glass phase. The concentration of crystal grains found to increase with increase in Nb2O5 content. The XRD studies have further revealed that the bulk samples are composed of columbite ZnNb2O6 crystal phases. Using generalized gradient approximation (GGA) quantitative information on these crystal phases viz., the lattice parameters, optical band gap and band structure were evaluated. The analysis of results of IR spectral studies have indicated that there is an increasing degree of polymerization of glass network with increase in Nb2O5 content due to the increased connectivity between various structural groups in the glass network. The optical absorption spectra indicated an increase in optical transmittance of the bulk samples with increase in Nb2O5 content. The dielectric parameters are observed to decrease, whereas the dielectric breakdown strength is observed to increase to a large extent due to the crystallization of the glass with the Nb2O5. The increase is attributed to the formation of ZnNb2O6 crystalline phases that contain intertwined ZnO6 and NbO6 structural units. As a whole, zinc borate glasses exhibited a significant increase in the electrical insulating strength due to the crystallization with Nb2O5 as the crystallizing agent. Further, the value of dielectric constant is also found to be the optimal with no dispersion with frequency up to 450K. Overall, the studied glass-ceramics meet the necessary physical conditions to be used as insulating layers in the display panels and hence may be considered for such applications.
