Session 7: Silicate Glass Structure

This session will look at experimental and computational studies of silicate glasses, focusing on atomic structure elucidation over a variety of length scales.  Studies of glass compositions ranging from pure silica to those containing other components, but rich in silicon dioxide, are appropriate topics for presentation.  Advanced experimental methods are also sought for discussion: Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance, vibrational spectroscopies; synchrotron–based methods like neutron scattering and high energy X-ray diffraction, and their use in understanding the critical linkage between glass structure and properties. Advanced modeling studies of silicate-based glasses, and especially the powerful combination of both modeling and experimental approaches, are also encouraged.
