Crystallization and Transparency of $Li_2O$.$2SiO_2$ Glass-Ceramics
Li2O.2SiO2 glass-ceramics were made from the melt by the nucleation and growth treatment. The optimum nucleation temperature and time were determined from DTA curves of as-quenched and thermally treated glasses, and found to be 44$0^{circ}C$ and 3hrs. The optical microscopic technique was also used to support this result. The volume fractions of crystals present in the partially crystallized specimens were measured using the optical microscopy and the amorphous X-ray scattering methods. The degree of crystallization increased with increasing the crystallization temperature and time. The crystalline phase identified by X-ray diffraction was lithium disilicate. As the crystallinity increased up to 95%, the transmittance of glass-ceramics was decreased linearly. It was also found that for the same heat treatment condition (575$^{circ}C$, 30min), a thicker specimen showed higher transmittance, presumably due to less crystallinity.
