Abstract

The uptake of silver from a molten silver chloride bath by an aluminosilicate glass is highly sensitive to the presence of sodium in the salt bath under both equilibrium and nonequilibrium conditions. The delta-n resulting from the silver dopant is reduced by nearly an order of magnitude by the addition of just 5-mol % sodium chloride to the melt. The addition of zinc chloride or lead chloride can be used to maintain high delta-n values in the presence of sodium in the melt.
