The dc conductivity of molybdenum phosphate glasses with the batch composition [(MoO3)z(P2O5)z-1 where z = 0.55, 0.60, 0.65, 0.70, and 0.75 has been studied. The non-linearity of the Arrhenius plot (ln(σ) versus T-1>) may be due to processes involving several similar activation energies, conduction by small polarons, or variable range hopping of carriers. The electrical conductivity results for these glasses have been discussed by applying the two models suggested by Meunier et al. and it has… CONTINUE READING
