Glass bead doped with Iridium (Ir4+) Ions
Size about 13mm – Weight ~ 1.2g
Nice glass bead. Each one handmade of phosphate glass in our lab.
Doping glasses with Iridium is a very complicated task and several attempts failed due to the extremely low solublity of Ir in any glass matrix. Finally I was able to successfully produce some Ir4+ containing glass beads containing several mol% if Ir4+.
Beautiful optical glass beads doped with metal ions.
Elaborately and individually manufactured by us in the laboratory from highly pure reagents.
Gorgeous beads showing the typical colors of different metal ions in different oxidation states.
They can be used for save demonstration of different colors of the metal compounds or just for collecting.
