Transparent β-quartz s.s. glass-ceramics in Li2O–Al2O3–SiO2 system have an undesirable brown color owing to Fe ions as a contaminant, whereas the mother glass normally has a clear appearance. Elucidation of the coloration mechanism during crystallization is important for industry to develop highly transparent materials. In this study, the mother glass… CONTINUE READING
