The interfacial zones in copper-magnesium aluminosilicate materials were characterized by several microscopic and microchemical techniques. Interfaces between copper-glass, copper-partially crystallized glass, and copper-fully crystallized glass were studied with the specific goal of determining the oxidation state of copper in various locations in the microstructure of the reaction zones. Optical microscopy, cathodoluminescence, electron probe microanalysis (EPMA), SEM, TEM, and other microtechniques were used. The presence of copper in various oxidation states can be attributed to the thermodynamics and kinetics of the system. Results correlating the observed interfacial microstructure and the thermochemistry of the system are presented.
