 Introduction

 A batch of prepared glass was mixed with CaO and Sm2O3 in
a composition ratio of [(SLS)0.79(CaO)0.21]1-y[Sm2O3]y where y
=(0,1,2,3,4,5) mol%, and specimens were then blended by
using regular melt-quenching method.

 Melting and quenching technique followed by conventional
solid state method is used in order to produce wollastonite-
based glass ceramics.

 Calcium Silicate acquires a higher luminous efficiency when it
is doped with rare earth activated ions due to their thermal
stability, high temperature strength, low thermal expansion
and chemical inertness.

Density (g/cm3)2.81 ❖ Density increases up to 4 mol % of Sm2O3 then
2.805 suddenly drops at 5 mol % of Sm2O3.

2.8 ❖ This indicates that by addition of small amount of
2.795 Sm2O3 in to CaO-SiO2 glass network, initially it may
resist the creation of non-bridging oxygen so the
2.79 density increases.
❖ With further increase in Sm2O3 concentration, the
2.78 creation of non-bridging oxygen takes place so the
density drops at 5 mol% of Sm2O3.

❖ During crystallization, re-adjustment of particles occurs as viscosity

increases, sintering occurs in viscous flow, and the particles were

joined via sintering necks.
❖ Since it has little effect in decreasing the pore size of the glass-

ceramic samples, the result is growth of grains and increased

❖ Sintering also causes the precursor glass to release stress,

which could result in a reduction in average interatomic
spacing. The reduction in interatomic spacing plays a
role in increasing density as sintering temperature

FTIR ❖ There are two broad bands at ~460 cm-1 and ~880 cm-1. The silica

Wavenumber (cm-1) ❖ The bands at 711 cm-1 may be ascribed to the Si-O-Si
symmetric stretching vibrational mode. Si-O vibration is
responsible for the absorption bands occurring at 1010
cm-1 .
❖ No change was observed in the location or intensity of
absorption bands of Sm3+ (1–5 mol %) doped CaSiO3
which proved that the dopant did not alter its phase and
crystallinity. These results are congruous with the findings
of a study carried out by Manjunatha et al. (2013).

Transmittance (a.u.) be ascribed to the symmetric stretching vibrations of

both Si-O and Si-O-Si bond bending, while the high-

frequency bands within the spectral range of 800-1250

cm-1 can be ascribed to the asymmetric stretching

modes of Si-O inwards the SiO4 tetrahedron.

❖ The data from the FTIR analysis validates that the IR

bands at 470, 508, 650, 905 and 1020 cm-1 are a result

of the wollastonite phase (Atalay et al., 2001). The

bands in the 1460 cm-1 span of the sample indicate

the presence of CaO in the structure of the sample.
