Summary:Wire-loop heating techniques coupled with micro-Raman spectroscopy are used to investigate SiO2 glass and supercooled liquid between room T and 1950 K. The dominant low-frequency Raman band increases with frequency and with increasing T, in contrast to the direction of normal anharmonic shifts, due to a decrease in the average Si-O-Si angle with increasing T. This change is due to the anharmonicity of the Si-O-Si bending vibration below Tg (the glass transformation range) and to the configurational changes at higher T. There is an increase in the intensity of the 606 cm-1 band due to an increase in the proportion of three-membered ring 'defect' species in the glass above Tg, indicating that structural relaxation in the liquid state is achieved by SiOSi bond breaking and reforming consistent with the activation energy for viscous flow. An energetic model is proposed for viscous relaxation in SiO2. [R.K.H.]
