Study of Glass Transition Kinetics of Ge25–x
(x = 12, 15 and 18) Glassy Alloys by Differential Scanning Calorimetery
Present paper describes the study of glass transition kinetics of Ge25–x
(x = 12, 15 and 18) glassy alloys using Differential Scanning Calorimetery (DSC). The glassy alloys have been prepared by rapid quenching of melt
technique. For structural characterization XRD and EDAX techniques have been used. DSC thermograms have been recorded at heating rates 5, 10, 15 and 20 K/min. from room temperature to 550 °C. Heating rate dependence of glass transition temperature has been studied by Lasocka’s empirical
relation. Dependence of glass transition temperature on Sb content in Ge–Se–Sb glassy alloys has also been discussed. Sb has been added at the cost of Ge in Ge–Se–Sb glassy series. Activation energy of glass transition has been evaluated by Kissinger Peak shift method.
Glass transition temperature and activation energy of glass transition, both, show the dependence on composition of glassy samples. This has been accounted for band formation in the samples.
