Decoupling Mobility and Charge Carrier Concentration in Agr-agpo3 Glasses (R = Cl, Br, I)

Bruno Poletto RodriguesLothar Wondraczek


Halide-containing silver phosphate glasses have been used as model systems for the study of the ionic conductivity of oxide glasses for the past 50 years, mostly due to the massive increase in conductivity observed as the halide concentration is increased, even if the molar ratio of silver is kept constant. Furthermore there is still no consensus if the increased conductivity is due to an enhancement of the number of effective charge carriers (glass as a weak electrolyte) or a higher charge carrier mobility (glass as a strong electrolyte). In this work we investigate the electrical properties of silver-halide-containing silver metaphosphate glasses through Impedance Spectroscopy. We find the glasses to follow the “canonical scaling”, which coupled with the diffusional nature of the conductivity allows us to show that the number of effective charge carriers remains constant with increasing halide concentration, and that the conductivity follows the same scaling as the ionic mobility.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
