Na+ ion conductivity has been studied in SnO.NaPO3 glasses, which have been prepared over a wide range of compositions using a microwave melting technique. D.c. activation barriers seem to reflect the structural changes in system. A.c. conductivity analysis has revealed that while the power law exponent, 𝑠, seem to bear correlation to the structural changes, the exponent 𝛽 of the stretched exponential function describing the dielectric relaxation is largely insensitive to the structure. Possible importance of the correlation of transport property to the variation of available non-bridging oxygen (NBO) atoms in the structure is discussed.
