Abstract : The report evaluates all the factors governing the electronic conductivity, the activation energy for conduction, and the dielectric constant of glasses as well as their interdependence in order to assess the possibility of developing a glass with certain characteristics as outlined in the text. Because no theoretical treatments have been published which may be used as a guidance for the preparation of the glasses of the desired properties, theoretical studies and experimental preparation of new glasses were undertaken. Although both oxide and non-oxide glasses were measured, emphasis was ultimately placed on oxide glasses. Preliminary calculations of fluoride and chalcogenide glasses imply that these are able to exceed the oxide glasses. (Modified author abstract)
