Title:  Chemically strengthened glasses and glass-ceramics Abstract:  Glass is scratch resistant, strong, and chemically durable, making it ideal for touch screens and covers for displays. Unfortunately, the strength of most glasses can be quickly degraded to less than 1% of its theoretical strength by handling due to the introduction of flaws which act as stress…

Title:  Multiscale investigation of stress-corrosion crack propagation mechanisms in oxide glasses Abstract: Fracture propagation involves the coupling of many length scales ranging from the sample loading geometry to the molecular level. In brittle materials, the length scales of the damage process zone are reduced to a submicrometric scale and the coupling with the macroscopic scale…

Title: Structural Aspects of Relaxational Dynamics in Glasses and Supercooled Liquids Abstract: The structure of a liquid in equilibrium undergoes rapid rearrangement with time. The structural rearrangement processes, however, drastically slow down with decreasing temperature in a glass-forming liquid as the glass transition temperature Tg is approached from above and the liquid falls out of…

Darshana and Arun Varshneya Frontiers of Glass Lectures

By Eileen De Guire / March 12, 2013

The Frontiers of Glass Science and the Frontiers of Glass Technology lectures are designed to encourage scientific and technical dialog in glass topics of significance that define new horizons, highlight new research concepts, or demonstrate the potential to develop products and processes for the benefit of humankind. While the Frontiers of Glass Science lecture focuses on advances in the basic science of glass, the Frontiers of Glass Technology lecture concentrates on new breakthroughs in glass technology or new glass products or applications. The lectures are presented at the Glass and Optical Materials Division meeting. The Varshneya awards committee will select the lecturers. The choice of lecturers may be from within or outside of the Society. The award consists of a travel stipend of up to $2,500, a commemorative glass piece and a framed certificate.
