    • Abstract


      Glass composites of strontium tetraborate, SrB4O7(SBO) with bismuth vanadate, Bi2VO5·5 (BiV) of the composition (1 −x) SBO-x BiV (0 ≤x ≤ 0·75), have been synthesized. X-ray powder diffraction and electron microscopy indicate as-quenched composites to be amorphous and the annealed samples showed the presence of nanometer sized particles of BiV dispersed in the glassy matrix of SBO. The dielectric constant of these composites increases with increase in the volume fraction of BiV, at 300 K. The measured dielectric constant of the composite very nearly obeys the Maxwell’s relationship. Optical transmission studies confirm a steady shift in the optical absorption edge towards longer wavelengths with increase inx.
