Glass viscosity calculations definitively debunk the myth of observable flow in medieval windows

By April Gocha / August 3, 2017

Glass scientists have taken a closer look at the urban legend of glass flow in medieval windows—combining theory and experimental techniques, the results definitely bust the myth and indicate the highest ever direct measurement of glass viscosity at low temperatures.

Glass genome opens up new opportunities for functional glasses with tailored properties

By April Gocha / June 23, 2016

Scientists at Corning Inc. (Corning, N.Y.) and Aalborg University (Aalborg, Denmark) have turned to computer modeling to help develop a glass-specific genome that will allow exploration and tailoring of specific properties of functional glasses.

Long-term measurements of ultrastable glass flow cut short with new process

By April Gocha / March 4, 2015

Researchers from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), University of Rome La Sapienza (Italy), and Politecnico Milano (Italy) have devised a technique to rapidly manufacture “old” glass—a process that would otherwise take millennia—and have generated results that suggest current glass theories might need revision.
