Transparent oxyfluoride glass-ceramics (GCs) were prepared starting from the glass composition 70SiO(2)-7Al(2)O(3)-16K(2)O-7LaF(3) (mol%) doped with four different Nd3+ concentrations (0.1-2 mol%). The glass-ceramics were prepared by heat treatment above the corresponding glass transition [read more]
