Symposium II: Glass Physics


Glassy materials play a vital role in a multitude of scientific and technological disciplines, and research in glass occurs at the interface of materials chemistry and physics, engineering, and industrial manufacturing. These materials have traditionally been designed and processed empirically through trial-and-error experimentation. To advance the field of glass science and technology, an unprecedented level of understanding of glass physics is required.


This symposium will address the fundamental principles and applications of glass physics, across a variety of chemistries (oxide, metallic, organic, chalcogenide etc.) and length scales (from the atomistic glass structure to large-scale behavior of glass products), and including contributions from experiments, theory, and modeling. Session topics will cover the fundamentals of glass formation and crystallization, modeling and theory development, and changes in various macroscopic properties as a function of chemistry and processing.
