Title: Precipitation of nanocrystals in glasses by electron irradiation: An alternative path to form glass ceramics?

Abstract

This letter demonstrates an alternative method to form gallium silicate glass ceramics using high-energy electron irradiation. Compared with glass ceramics obtained from the conventional thermal treatment method, the distribution and crystal sizes of the precipitated Ga{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanoparticles are the same. An advantage of this method is that the spatial distribution of the precipitated nanoparticles can be easily controlled. However, optically active dopants Ni{sup 2+} ions do not participate in the precipitation during electron irradiation.
