The scope of the session covers scientific, technological and practical aspects of non-silicate glasses, such as chalcogenides, tellurites, gallates, germanates, heavy metal oxide glasses, etc. The expected topics include but not limited to the glasses for optical, biomedical, energy, sensor, nanoelectronic and other emerging applications. Novel contributions, which link properties, structure and functionality, are especially welcomed. The session is offering a unique opportunity for experts from both academia and industry to meet and exchange ideas on the optimization of functionality of non-silicate glasses through understanding the structure-properties relationship.
