Glass nanocomposites (GNC) in the system (100 - x)Li2B4O7 - xSrBi(2)Nb(2)O(9) (0 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 30) were prepared by splat quenching technique. The as-quenched samples of all the compositions under study have been confirmed to be amorphous by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) studies. Differential thermal analyses (DTA) suggest the glassy nature of the as-quenched samples. High-resolution transmission electron microscopic (HRTEM) studies carried out on heat-treated samples reveal the presence of platy crystallites of SrBi2Nb2O9(SBN) dispersed in the glassy matrix of Li2B4O7 (LBO). The dielectric constant (epsilon (r)) and the dielectric loss (D) decrease with increase in frequency (100 Hz-10 MHz) at 300 K. The influence of the composition and the microstructure on the dielectric properties of the LBO-SBN nanocomposite has been established. The optical transmission characteristics of these GNC could be varied as a function of its composition.
