Abstract

Viscosity and recoverable shear creep compliance measurements of amorphous selenium and SexAs1-x binary solutions have been made below and above the glass transition temperature. The measurements suggest that selenium is a relatively low-molecular weight polymer and that the arsenic-selenium solutions are dynamic networks which display viscosities similar to those of uncrosslinked materials. We observe no evidence for the presence of rings.
