AbstractWe investigated the formation of very small Ag nanoparticles of 1-2 nm size in soda-lime glass with enhanced amounts of iron oxide by Ag/Na ion exchange procedures. The duration of ion exchange has been chosen between 20 and 600 h to study the processes systematically. It could be shown that structural relaxations take place as the Ag + ions were incorporated into the glass replacing the Na + of the original matrix. X-ray absorption spectroscopy at the Fe K-edge demonstrated that polyvalent Fe ions se…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
