Environment-induced Restructuring

2011 Glass & Optical Materials Division Spring Meeting

The amorphous state can come about through many mechanisms unrelated to the glass transition. Topological rearrangements of glass and crystalline structures can occur through radiation-induced displacements, radiolytic effects, transmutation, extended diffusion, mechanical alloying, pressure, and environmental changes such as corrosion. This session aims to explore these phenomena and ways to counteract or utilize them, such as radiation-hardened materials, radioactive wastes, amorphous material synthesis, optimized proton-exchange membranes, and stress hardened materials.
