A 19F NMR study of a typical heavy metal fluoride glass has revealed the presence of three discrete fluoride ion sites in the glass structure. Line shape analysis suggests that one of these sites plays a role in the structural framework while the other types of fluoride ion become mobile with increasing temperature.
