Session 2: Crystallization in glass and its application

This session is devoted to building fundamental understanding of crystallization in glass and glass-ceramics and its application. It will cover both experimental, analytical/characterization as well as numerical/modeling aspects of nucleation and growth in glass and glass-ceramics.


Topics to be covered include, but not limited to:


  • Theoretical, simulation, and experimental studies of nucleation and crystal growth in glasses and liquids
  • The critical role of glass composition, structure, and nucleating agents on crystallization
  • Amorphous phase separation and its role in influencing crystallization
  • Novel methods and characterization techniques (ex-situ, in-situ) to understand crystallization
  • Advanced modeling and simulation techniques to elucidate crystallization
  • Properties of glass-ceramics (thermal, mechanical, electrical, optical, chemical, etc.)
  • Microstructure/property relationships in glass-ceramics
  • Applications of glass-ceramics
  • Crystallization phenomena relevant to earth and planetary sciences, including comparison of glass-ceramics to crystalline rocks in terms of mineralogy, microstructure, and properties
  • Glass forming ability of compositions and related issues
  • Crystallization phenomena in related materials
