Abstract

Glasses with compositions xV(2)O(5) - (100 - x)0.8NaPO(3) - 0.2ZnO] (where 0.2 <= x <= 10 in mol%) were prepared by a new microwave heating method. The Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectra of vanadyl ions in the glasses exhibit a hyperfine structure. From EPR spectra the spin Hamiltonian parameters g(parallel to), g(perpendicular to), A(parallel to), A(perpendicular to), dipolar hyperfine coupling parameter (P), Fermi contact interaction parameter (K), Pb-2(*2) K and PK/gamma have been evaluated. An increase in the ratio of Delta g(parallel to)/Delta g(perpendicular to). with an increase in V2O5 content shows that the tetragonal nature of the V4+O6 complex is enhanced. The increase in A(parallel to) and P indicates that the 3d(xy) orbit contracts with V2O5 content. The molecular orbital coefficients alpha(2), gamma(2) have been determined by correlating the EPR and optical absorption data. The values of alpha(2) increase while gamma(2) decreases with an increase in V2O5 content, indicating the sigma - bonding between the vanadium atom and the equatorial ligands decreases and the effect of pi - bonding with the vanadyl oxygen increases. The bond ionicity and covalency of the glass network has been calculated using Pauling's electronegativity support the experimental findings. Observed variations in the optical band gap, refractive index, molar refraction, metallization criterion, electronic polarizability of the oxide ion and optical basicity are correlated with the glass structure. The photoluminescence (PL) excitation spectra reveal two individual peaks at 338 and 468 nm which are ascribed to the charge transfer reaction in VO4](3-) groups. An emission peak occurs at 531 nm and concentration quenching is seen beyond 0.5 mol% of V2O5. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
