Temperature dependent DC electrical conductivity studies of GeO2 substituted lead vanadate glass systems xGeO2(50-x)PbO:50V2O5 (x = 5, 10, 15 mole%) were carried out and the results are reported. X-ray diffraction results reveal that all samples are perfect amorphous in nature. DSC results indicate that the substituent GeO2 is replacing PbO in the glass network in such a way that the eutectic composition is maintained. DC electrical conductivity studies of the glass samples indicate that the systems are characterized by different activation energies in different temperature ranges which in turn depend on the annealing temperature. These results are interpreted in terms of temperature dependent microstructural changes in these glass systems.
