The anion-excess fluorite-like solid solutions with general composition Bi1-xTex(O,F)2+δ (x > 0.5) have been synthesized by a solid state reaction of TeO2, BiF3 and Bi2O3 at 873 K with following quenching. The homogeneity areas and polymorphism of the I ↔ IV Bi1-xTex(O,F) 2+δ phases were investigated. The crystal structure of the low temperature IV-Bi1-xTex(O,F)2+δ phase has been solved using electron diffraction and X-ray powder diffraction (a = 11.53051(9) , S.G. Ia-3, RI = 0.046, RP = 0.041). Glass formation area in the Bi2O3-BiF3-TeO 2 (10% TiO2) system was investigated. IVBi 1-xTex(O,F)2+δ phase starts to crystallize at short-time (0.5-3 h) annealing of oxyfluoride glasses at temperatures above Tg (600-615 K). The ionic conductivity of the crystalline Bi1-xTex(O,F)2+δ phase and corresponding glass-ceramics was investigated. Activation energy of conductivity Ea = 0.41(2) eV for the IV-Bi1-xTex(O,F) 2+δ crystalline samples and Ea = 0.73 eV for the glass-ceramic samples were obtained. Investigation of the oxyfluoride samples with a constant cation ratio demonstrates essential influence of excess fluorine anions on the ionic conductivity.
