Session 6: Glass Surfaces (ICG TC19) | The American Ceramic Society

Session 6: Glass Surfaces (ICG TC19)

Surface properties of glass materials play critical roles in practical applications in various fields. Thus, fundamental understanding of glass surface science is important for improvement of existing as well as development of new functionalities of various glass materials. This session will be an active discussion forum sharing and discussing new advancements in compositional and structural characterizations of glass surfaces and how chemical reactivity and mechanical durability of glass materials can be explained, interpreted, or predicted with new insights from such characterizations.  Experimental, theoretical, and computational works are all considered. All types of glass materials will be covered including oxides, metallic glasses, organic glasses and chalcogenides.
