Abstract :

The chalcogenide glasses have been the subject of great interest due to their wide technological applications. The chalcogenide materials containing Te show high transmittance, i.e., 2-12 ?¼m, in the IR region. In the present work far infrared transmission spectra of Se30Te70-xSnx (x=0, 1.5, 2.5 and 4.5) glassy alloys have been studied, at room temperature, in the spectral range 30â??700 cmâ??1. Various structural parameters have been investigated in the light of existing models such as function of average coordination number and valence force field theory using force constants. The overall mean bond energy of a covalent network for a ternary system is interpreted in terms of vibrations of isolated molecular units, to preserve fourfold and twofold coordination for Sn and chalcogen atoms (Se, Te), respectively. The infrared spectra of Se30Te70- xSnx glassy alloy has been explained by assigning different modes to the observed bands. It is found that Sn forms bond with Se, having bond energy 49.23 kcal/mol, and is favored by the CONM model. It may be due to the fact that replacement of Te with Sn leads to absorptions that occur at longer wavelength. It is observed that addition of Sn results in shifting of infrared spectra towards lower frequency with formation of new bands as reported in the earlier studies. It has been correlated with the structural changes occurring in the alloy due to the addition of Sn.
