The crystallization behavior of zinctellirite (20ZnO·80TeO2) glass at different rates of heating and cooling were studied by an in situ high-temperature X-ray diffractometer (a rapid measurement system). During the heating process, α-TeO2 and ZnTeO3 were found to crystallize first, followed by the crystallization of Zn2Te3O8. While during the cooling process from melt, α-TeO2 was found to crystallize first, followed by the crystallization of Zn2Te3O8. The results of crystallization behavior of the 20ZnO·80TeO2 glass were compared with a Temperature-Time-Transfer diagram of the corresponding glass reported by Todoroki et al.
