Abstract

This work reports the effect of Ge, Sb, Sn additives on the thermally activated glass to crystal phase transition in binary Se90In10 alloy. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique is used for this purpose. Different kinetic parameters of glass/crystal transformation have been calculated. The results are explained using the chemical bond approach for the covalent network of such glasses.
