Title: Zero photoelastic and water durable ZnO–SnO–P{sub 2}O{sub 5}–B{sub 2}O{sub 3} glasses

We report properties of zero birefringent xZnO–(67–x)SnO–(33–y)P{sub 2}O{sub 5}–y B{sub 2}O{sub 3} glasses, within 18.5 ≤ x ≤ 22 and y = 0, 3, and 10 mol. %. These compositions of boro-phosphate glasses provide both zero photoelastic constant (PEC) and improved water durability. x = 19 and y = 3 compositions show minimum PEC of −0.002 × 10{sup −12} Pa{sup −1}, which can contribute to candidate material for fiber current sensor devise without lead. The structures of zero photoelastic glasses were investigated by Raman scattering and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies. Compositions of zero PEC glasses are explained by the empirical model proposed by Zwanziger et al. [Chem. Mater. 19, 286-290 (2007)].
