The effect of Sr modifier atoms on the structure of stannosilicate glasses of composition (Sr0)(x)(SnO)(0.5-x)(SiP2)(0.5), with 0 <= x <= 0.15, has been studied using Mossbauer spectroscopy and neutron and X-ray diffraction. The tin is mostly in the Sn2+ state. The Sr-O bond length undergoes a step decrease from (2.640 +/- 0.005) angstrom to (2.585 +/- 0.005) angstrom as x increases from 0.10 to 0.15, indicating a decrease in coordination number from 8 to 7. A Sn-Sn distance of 3.507 +/- 0.005 angstrom is revealed by a first-order difference calculation from the x = 0 sample. This is too short to be consistent with significant edge sharing of [SnO3] trigonal pyramids.
