Alkali silicate glass appears to defy Joule’s first law—but does it really?

By Lisa McDonald / March 12, 2019

Researchers from Lehigh University and Corning Inc. showed the temperature of electrically heated glass defies predictions of traditional Joule’s first law by a long shot—over a thousand degrees! However, the law still appears to work when microscale heterogeneities are given due consideration.
