Cu-alkali ion exchange in silicate glasses gives rise to a peculiar copper distribution, with the presence of both the Cu2+ and Cu+ oxidation states. Grazing incidence X-ray absorption near-edge structure spectroscopy and secondary ion mass spectrometry were performed on different ion-exchanged samples. The results show that the Cu2+/Cu+ ratio is strongly depth-dependent. The relative presence of the two species throughout the exchanged region turns out to be governed by their different diffusion regimes, while the chemistry of the redox process is shown to play a minor role. A phenomenological model is proposed to describe the diffusion process.
