The Effect of Mixed Iodide Salts on the Conductivity Behavior in Ag2O-V2O5-B2O3 Superionic Glass System


A superionic mixed metal iodide glass system [(PbI2 –CuI ) - Ag2O- V2O5- B2O3] has been prepared by splat quenching technique. The prepared glass samples are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calo- rimetry (DSC). The effect of mixed metal iodide salts concentration on electrical properties has been investigated by the complex impedance spectroscopy (CIS). AC conductivity analysis is carried out in the frequency range of 2MHz-1Hz at different temperatures and an enhancement in the conductivity with iodide salts is the main feature of the observed re- sults with an anomaly at 20 mole % of PbI2 –CuI.
