Latest Glass transition Stories
One component epoxy system for bonding, sealing, coating and casting features notable retention of properties at high temperatures, serviceable up to 650°F.
Researchers have found a way to determine whether glass will be brittle, or will have the ability to bend without breaking.
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.
Using high-resolution imaging technology, University of Illinois researchers have answered a question that had confounded semiconductor researchers: Is amorphous silicon a glass? The answer? Yes â€“ until hydrogen is added.
Manufacturers who design new materials often struggle to understand viscous liquids at a molecular scale.
Harvard-led research advances understanding of wound healing, cancer metastasis, and embryonic development.
Glass is something we all know about. It's what we sip our drinks from, what we look out of to see what the weather is like before going outside and it is the backbone to our high speed communications infrastructure (optical fibers).
The National Science Foundation has awarded $1.65 million to a project led by Washington University in St Louis physicist Ken Kelton to build an electrostatic levitation chamber that will be installed at the Spallation Neutron Source at the Oakridge National Laboratory.
The universe is full of water, mostly in the form of very cold ice films deposited on interstellar dust particles, but until recently little was known about the detailed small scale structure.
