Abstract Data of density, refractive index and thermal expansion coefficient for B 2 O 3 –SiO 2 and GeO 2– SiO 2 glasses have been analyzed. The volumes of the structural units are the same found for the vitreous B 2 O 3 , GeO 2 and SiO 2 . The volume of any structural unit is constant over the entire composition region of the glass system. The same has been found for the differential refraction and unit refraction of the structural units in these glasses. Different features are observed for… CONTINUE READING
