Description

Functional Glasses and Glass-Ceramics: Processing, Properties and Applications provides comprehensive coverage of the current state-of-the-art on a range of material synthesis. This work discusses the functional properties and applications of both oxide and non-oxide glasses and glass-ceramics.

Part One provides an introduction to the basic concept of functional glasses and glass-ceramics, while Part Two describes the functional glasses and glass-ceramics of oxide systems, covering functionalization of glasses by 3d transition metal ion doping, 4f rare earth metal ion doping, crystallization, laser irradiation micro fabrication, incorporation of nanometals, the incorporation of semiconductor coatings, the functionalization for biomedical applications, solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) sealants, and display devices, and from waste materials.

Part Three describes functional glasses and glass-ceramics of non-oxide systems, covering functional chalcogenide and functional halide glasses, glass-ceramics, and functional bulk metallic glasses. The book contains future outlooks and exercises at the end of each chapter, and can be used as a reference for researchers and practitioners in the industry and those in post graduate studies.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive text that explores the field of both functional glass and glass ceramics
  • Presents an in-depth discussion on the definition of a functional glass
  • Includes discussions of advanced processing, functional properties, and functional applications of a wide array of functional glasses and glass-ceramics
  • Written using a systematic approach that can only be accomplished through an authored work

Readership

Researchers, educators, scientists, professionals, practitioners in industry, and R & D managers and planners of  glass and materials science and engineering, and post graduate students. Also within interdisciplinary areas such as chemistry, physics, ceramics, metallurgy, electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and various disciplines of engineering
