Description

Non-crystalline, amorphous and glass materials have importance for a broad range of applications such as electronics, optics, medicines, and nuclear waste management. The physics of these materials is complex, encompassing electrical, optical, mechanical, and thermal properties, as well as topics of thermodynamics, crystallization, relaxation, kinetic surfaces and defects. This volume contains a complete record of papers presented at the Physics of Non-Crystalline Solids VII International Conference organized and sponsored by the Society of Glass Technology in Churchill College, Cambridge, during August 1991. The conference, like its predecessors held once every six years, is essentially interdisciplinary and centres on the relationship of thermal history and method of preparation and relaxation phenomena to the structure and properties of glass at room temperature. It represents the forefront of research in this vital area.show more
