Densified silica can be obtained by different pressure and temperature paths and for different stress conditions, hydrostatic or including shear. The density is usually the macroscopic parameter used to characterize the different compressed silica samples. The aim of our present study is to compare structural modifications for silica glass, densified from(More)
Raman microspectroscopy was used to characterize amorphous silica plastic behavior. Using a correlation between Raman spectrum and density, a map of the local residual indentation-induced densification is obtained. The existence of a densification-induced hardening is also evidenced through a diamond anvil cell experiment. Such observations are not(More)
The elastic and plastic behaviors of silica glasses densified at various maximum pressure reached (12 GPa, 15 GPa, 19 GPa, and 22 GPa), were analyzed using in situ Raman and Brillouin spectroscopies. The elastic anomaly was observed to progressively vanish up to a maximum pressure reached of 12 GPa, beyond which it is completely suppressed. Above the(More)
The in situ elastic and plastic behaviors of sodium aluminosilicate glasses with different degrees of depolymerization were analyzed using Brillouin spectroscopy. The observed elastic anomaly progressively vanished with depolymerization. The densification process appears to be different from that observed in pure silica glass. In the plastic regime of(More)
The deposition of a thin layer of a quantum-cutter material on top of silicon-based solar cells seems to be a promising solution to reduce the thermalization losses. This mechanism has been reported in materials codoped with Pr3+-Yb3+, where Pr3+ can sensitize two Yb3+ ions for one absorbed blue photon. In the present Letter, we analyze precisely energy(More)
Raman micro-spectroscopy is used to analyse the plastic behaviour of window glass (a soda-lime silicate glass) under high hydrostatic pressure and Vickers indentation. We show pressure-induced irreversible structural changes, notably an increase of Q(2) species at the expense of Q(3). For the first time, a very accurate [Formula: see text] calibration curve(More)
Depending on the composition of silicate glasses, their elastic moduli can increase or decrease as function of the temperature. Studying the Brillouin frequency shift of these glasses versus temperature allows the a-thermal composition corresponding to an intermediate glass to be determined. In an intermediate glass, the elastic moduli are independent of(More)
In situ micro-Raman spectroscopy was performed on lanthanum borogermanate (LBG) glasses, compressed in a diamond anvil cell at ambient temperature. Up to 5.6 GPa the structural changes are reversible, whereas experiments performed at 10 GPa and higher are characterized by hysteresis loops. A noticeable change of evolution of the main Raman band at 800(More)
Raman scattering experiments have been carried out to study persistent densification in SiO(2) glass following hydrostatic compression at room temperature. A new relationship linking selective Raman parameters to the degree of densification in the glass has been developed here. This approach will allow quantification of the residual densification in silica(More)
