Glass molded article and producing same, optical element blank, and optical element and producing same
When heating a glass gob including optical glass containing phosphorus, oxygen and fluorine to a temperature at which press-molding is possible, there are many cases in which the surface of the glass gob crystallizes and hardens. The problem of surface crystallization of glass gobs when press-molding is particularly prominent with glass to be polished and subjected to press-molding at a high temperature.
