Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2020
Symposium Glasses, Optical Materials, and their Functional Applications: Current Issues in Science & Technology
Sponsorship ACerS Glass & Optical Materials Division
Organizer(s) Jincheng Du, University of North Texas
S. K. Sundaram, Alfred University
Scope This symposium provides a forum for the exchange and discussion of current issues in the science and technology of glasses and optical materials. The symposium will cover recent theoretical and experimental advances in fundamental and applied glass sciences, novel glass synthesis and characterization methods, and structure-processing-properties relations of optical materials and their applications. The symposium will also provide a forum to a broader audience for emerging technological applications of materials spanning over disorder-order structural spectrum. Examples of topics of interest include advanced structural characterizations of glasses, glass transition and relaxation, atomistic scale simulations of glasses, structure-property relations, new functionalities and novel applications of glasses and amorphous materials. All contributions from academia, national laboratories, and industries that address recent advances and new applications are welcome. This symposium includes the ACerS GOMD Alfred R. Cooper Award session and it is endorsed by the ACerS Glass & Optical Materials Division, Nuclear & Environmental Technology Division, and Basic Science Division.

- Advances in glass structural characterizations
- Atomistic computer simulations of glasses, melt, and crystallization
