THE 12th WORKSHOP FOR NEW RESEARCHERS IN GLASS SCIENCE AND APPLICATION
GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES & Rheology: viscosity and relaxation
MONTPELLIER (France), 6th-10th JULY 2020
The workshop will be composed of two interwoven threads.
The first thread will overview fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure. Specific properties and applications will be discussed e.g. optical behaviour, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallisation, and strength.
The second thread will focus on the viscosity of commercial and geological glass forming melts, measurement methods and models to describe the temperature and composition dependence. Next viscoelastic behaviour near the glass transition, Tg will be described, particularly in the context of glass fabrication processes such as fibre making and pressing.
The lecturers will be world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student-centred projects that will help participants to develop their understanding by applying what they know to specific issues.
Is this for you ?
If you are a new PhD or Masters student or have recently started research in the glass industry then the answer is yes.
