Abstract: Heavy metal fluoride glass ZBLAN, with molar composition ZrF4(53)-BaF2(20)-LaF3(4)-AlF 3(3)-NaF(20), was studied in vacuum at high temperatures up to 480°C by Raman spectroscopy. The vitreous glass was found to crystallize at 330°C, most probably to β-BaZrF6 crystallites. High-temperature experiments in air were also carried out and ZrO2 was formed at the surface of the sample. Doping by SiO2 increases the crystallization temperature by 25°C for experiments performed in air, while PbO2 dopants are found to react with the host. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
