Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2016
Symposium Glass, Amorphous, and Optical Materials: Common Issues within Science & Technology
Organizer(s) Steve W. Martin, Iowa State University
Gang Chen, Ohio University
Scope This symposium provides a forum for the discussion of current issues in the science and technology of amorphous, glass, and optical materials. The symposium will cover recent theoretical and experimental advances in fundamental and applied glass sciences, novel glass/ceramic synthesis and characterization methods, structure, processing and properties of optical materials and devices, structure, processing, and properties of amorphous semi-conducting materials and devices, and emerging technological applications of amorphous, glass, ceramic, and optical materials. Structural analysis, glass transition and relaxation, atomistic scale modeling techniques, amorphous materials, glasses, and ceramics for energy applications, and new functional amorphous and glass materials are among the topics of interest. All contributions that address recent advances in understanding in the field as well as reports on new applications are welcome.
