Abstract
Neutron and highenergy synchrotron xray diffraction experiments have been performed on the (75− x )SiO 2 – x B 2 O 3 –25Na 2 O x = 5, 10, 15 and 20 mol% glasses. The structure factor has been measured over a broad momentum transfer range, between 0.4 and 22 Å −1 . For data analyses and modelling the Fourier transformation and the reverse Monte Carlo simulation techniques have been applied. The partial atomic pair correlation functions, the nearest neighbour distances, coordination number distributions and average coordination number values and threeparticle bond angle distributions have been revealed. The Si–O network proved to be highly stable consisting of SiO 4 tetrahedral units with characteristic distances at r Si–O = 1.60 Å and r Si–Si = 3.0(5) Å. The behaviour of network forming boron atoms proved to be more complex. The first neighbour B–O distances show two distinct values at 1.30 Å and a characteristic peak at 1.5(5) Å and, both trigonal BO 3 and tetrahedral BO 4 units are present. The relative abundance of BO 4 and BO 3 units depend on the boron content, and with increasing boron content the number of BO 4 is decreasing, while BO 3 is increasing.
