Session 2: Sol-gel processing of glasses and ceramic materials


Sol-gel processing uses low-temperature processing approaches to produce glass and ceramic materials with high purity, excellent homogeneity, and well-controlled morphology. This session will focus on all aspects of sol-gel derived and nanostructured materials prepared by liquid synthesis, including:

  • Sol-gel routes to bulk, film, glass coating, colloidal, nanoparticle, porous, and hybrid organic-inorganic materials
  • Structural characterization using spectroscopic, scattering, and imaging techniques
  • Computer simulations through the molecular dynamics, Monte-Carlo, and reverse Monte-Carlo simulation methods
  • New functionalities based on the optical, electrical, thermal, mechanical, chemical, and biomedical properties
  • New sol-gel materials and products for energy and other applications
