Session 2



Quantum processes in glasses encompass quite a wide range. For example, large quantum fluctuations serve to inhibit glass formation as tunneling and zero-point energy allow particles to traverse barriers, facilitating movement. Quantum efficiency and energy transfer processes in rare-earth-doped glasses show strong compositional dependence. Quantum-doped glasses unravel nonlinear optical processes. Selected topics of interest will be included.

  • Quantum mechanic modeling of glasses
  • Quantum fluctuations and glass formation
  • Quantum dots and other structures in glasses
  • Quantum optical processes in rare-earth-doped glasses
