Ultrathin glass goes ultrawide

By Jonathon Foreman / August 30, 2019

Glass panels with large dimensions can be fabricated using the float glass process—but can the process also fabricate ultrathin glass? Scientists at the State Key Laboratory for Float Glass in China report it can—while still retaining large dimensions.

Two theories, one goal—new formula also describes heat flow in both crystals and glass

By Lisa McDonald / August 30, 2019

In May, a formula was published that could describe thermal transport in both crystals and glass. Now, a new formula by researchers in Italy and the United States based on a different mathematical framework can also model such thermal transport.

Lithium is not the (Li)mit—researchers produce all-solid-state sodium-ion battery

By Jonathon Foreman / August 27, 2019

To advance energy storage technologies, batteries made from materials other than lithium need to be developed and explored. Researchers from Nippon Electric Glass and Nagaoka University of Technology created one such battery—an all-solid-state sodium-ion battery.

Directly from glassy to crystal: Phase change material switches state without entering liquid phase

By Lisa McDonald / August 27, 2019

Phase change materials are an excellent way to store data—if you know how to effectively switch between the material’s glassy and crystal states. Researchers at the University of Arizona and RWTH Aachen University discovered unlike most glasses, the PCM Ge2Sb2Te5 can switch directly from glassy to crystal without entering the liquid phase.
