In this paper, we have studied the isothermal and non-isothermal glass-crystal transition in AgI-doped silver selenomolybdate glasses using differential scanning calorimetry. We have observed a strong dependence of AgI on the glass-crystal transition of these glasses. The activation energy for the crystallization and the dimensionality of the crystal growth for the isothermal and non-isothermal crystallization processes have been determined. The dimensionality of the crystal growth depends strongly on the AgI content and intriguingly shows different behavior when compared for isothermal and non-isothermal cases. For the present glass system the John-Mehl-Avrami model describes well the isothermal crystallization kinetics, while the Sestak-Berggren model is more suitable to describe the non-isothermal crystallization kinetics for glass-crystal transformation.
