Glass Structure Course_website logo FINAL

Though ceramics is the main focus at The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), glass is a significant part of the Society as well. In celebration of the International Year of Glass (IYOG), ACerS is pleased to support a special IYOG online course titled Structure of Glass. The course consists of 26 lectures and is led by Prof. Steve Martin, Iowa State University, along with leading experts in the field. The course is sponsored by ACerS Glass & Optical Materials Division (GOMD) and The International Commission on Glass (ICG).
