In this work, mixed alkali metaphosphate glasses based on K-Na, Rb-Na, Rb-Li, Cs-Na and Cs-Li combinations were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), complex impedance spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy. DSC analyses show that both the glass transition (T-g) and melting temperatures (T-m) exhibit a clear mixed-ion effect. The ionic conductivity shows a strong mixed-ion effect and decreases by more than six orders of magnitude at room temperature for Rb-Na or Cs-Li alkali pairs. This study confirms that the mixed-ion effect may be explained as a natural consequence of random ion mixing because ion transport is favoured between well-matched energy sites and is impeded due to the structural mismatch between neighbouring sites for dissimilar ions.
