Chalcogenide glass microphotonics: Stepping into the spotlight

24

Juejun Hu, Lan Li, Hongtao Lin, Yi Zou, Qingyang Du, Charmayne Smith, Spencer Novak, Kathleen Richardson, and J. David Musgraves

     Integrated photonics on flexible substrates and on-chip infrared spectroscopic sensing expand new applications for chalcogenide glasses beyond phase change data storage and moldable infrared optics.


An analysis of glass–ceramic research and commercialization

30

Maziar Montazerian, Shiv Prakash Singh, and Edgar Dutra Zanotto

    Distinct properties of glass–ceramics give them unique applications in domestic, space, defense, health, electronics, architecture, chemical, energy, and waste management.


Peering into the past: What early telescopes reveal about glass technology and scientific evolution

36

April Gocha

     Corning Museum of Glass curator Marvin Bolt discusses how studying early telescopes provides a glimpse into the evolution of science, birth of glass science, and world history.


Nonlinear elasticity of silica fibers studied by in-situ Brillouin light scattering in two-point bend test

40

Michael Guerette and Liping Huang

     In-situ Brillouin light-scattering shows that an expression including the fifth-order term is required to capture both minimum in compression and maximum in tension in the elastic modulus of silica glass.
