Session 9: Sol Gel Glasses
Sol-gel processing uses low-temperature approaches to produce glasses and optical materials with high purity, excellent homogeneity, and well-controlled morphology. This symposium will focus on all aspects of sol-gel derived and nanostructured materials, including: Sol-gel routes to bulk, fiber, thin film, coating, colloidal, and porous materials; Sol-gel routes to hybrid organic-inorganic materials; Structural characterization using spectroscopic, scattering, and imaging techniques; New functionalities based on the optical, electrical, thermal, catalytic, mechanical, chemical, and biomedical properties; and New sol-gel materials and products for energy applications.
