Determination of ion exchange parameters by a genetic algorithm

Brian R. West and Sepppo Honkanen

published: 2005 | Research publication | Arizona

Modeling the process of ion exchange in glass requires accurate knowledge of the self-diffusion coefficients of the incoming and outgoing ions. Furthermore, correlating the concentration profile of the incoming ions to a change in refractive index requires knowledge of the correlation coefficient. We present a method by which these three parameters can be quickly determined experimentally, using a genetic algorithm.
