    • Abstract

       

      The preparation of (40-x)Li2O-xLiF-60Bi2O3 glassy system and spectroscopic and transport studies of this system are reported. IR results show that this glass consists of [BiO3] units and indicate formation of Bi-F bonds with the addition of LiF. From the ESR spectra of Cu2+ ion, the effectiveg values are found to vary slightly with increasing concentration of fluorine ion. The optical absorption peak corresponding to Cu2+ increased linearly with increasing concentration of LiF between 620 nm and 728 nm except at 2.5 mole% of LiF where its value is 729 nm. This peculiar behaviour is attributed to the varying structural coordination of fluorine as the concentration of lithium fluoride is increased. The ionic conductivity measurements indicate that the conduction is due to adiabatic hopping of polarons and the activation energies are found to be temperature and concentration dependent
