Abstract: The viscosity values of borate melts containing 1 wt% of REO from lanthanide group in the temperature range of 1100-1700 K were measured with the use of vibrational viscosiometer. The activation energy of viscous flow was calculated. A stagger viscosity dependence at increasing the atomic number of the lanthanide in the range of studied melts , is subjected to in-row periodicity (tetrad effect). The deviations from tetrad effect is caused by a formation of two-valent rare-earth ions in the melt.
