Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Sol-Gel Synthesis of Aluminosilicate Glasses
by Mogili, Sravya, M.S., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2014, 49; 1584733
Abstract (Summary)

The main goal of this research project is to synthesize aluminosilicate glass materials that are doped with praseodymium. To be useful for optical studies, these glass materials must be optically transparent, strong enough to be handled and polished, and free of cracks. An advantage of the sol-gel process is that we have control over the amount of doping. However, a disadvantage of the sol-gel process is that cracking often occurs during the drying step.
