S4: Glass Technology
Where would we be without glass? Advances in communications, alternative and renewable energy and medicine have all been enabled through the development and application of glasses. Improvements in the processing and properties of glass have contributed to many technological breakthroughs but there are still advancements to be made! This symposium will focus on applications of glass technology in several “hot” areas such as energy production and storage, environmental applications, and medicine and biotechnology. The symposium will also focus on glass melting and processing as a means to improve glass production and increase the functionality of glass. The important topic of glass strength and high strength products is also a focus topic of this symposium.
