Glass ProductionGlass ProductionReactantsAfter a glass composition has been selected for use, a method of preparing the glass in quantity with high quality must be developed. Of first importance is identifying a reliable source of the required elemental reactants in high-purity form. The transport properties, electrical conductance, of crystalline materials may be dominated by small concentrations of impurities in their reactants. Chalcogenide glasses have already been described as poor electronic conductors, so the metallic impurity effect on conductance is of minor consequence. However, their optical properties may be …
