Latest Glass physics Stories
Michael Marcus, Principal scientist at Rochester-based Lumetrics Inc, presents latest findings on precise refractive index measurements of lenses and other optical components at the 2013 OptiFab
In a new study, scientists have discovered that the structure of fossil amber barely changes even after tens of millions of years, overturning long-held theories about how glass forms.
Researchers have found a way to determine whether glass will be brittle, or will have the ability to bend without breaking.
There has been great advancements in the development of the high-strength steel and the need for additional enhancements continue to grow.
Scientists who look at the structure of glass strictly by the numbers think that some of the newest methods of microelectronics and nanotechnology could produce glass with twice the strength of what is currently available.
Glass, by definition, is amorphous; its atoms lack order and are arranged every which way, but when scientists squeezed tiny samples of a metallic glass under high pressure, they got a surprise: The atoms lined up in a regular pattern to form a single crystal.
Manufacturers who design new materials often struggle to understand viscous liquids at a molecular scale.
