Abstract : The regions of glass formation in the system Li20-B203-Pb0-Si02 are determined at the levels. of 10, 15, and 20 wt. % Li20. Three compositions are selected at the levels of 10, 30, and 50 wt. % Pb0 as potential glasses for the use in the optical system of a radiation protected pod. The manufacture of these three glasses is described and their properties are reported. (Author)
