Structure of certain glasses
M.L. Huggins and T. Abe postulate that in glasses containing, in addition to boric oxide, small relative amounts of an alkali of alkaline earth oxide, some of the boron atoms are surrounded by four oxygen atoms, all the oxygen atoms bridging between two boron atoms, while at concentrations beyond that of the thermal expansion minimum, some oxygens are assumed to have only one boron neighbor.
