Ceramic transactions; v.231


The two gatherings were held concurrently but not jointly, and 18 papers from the conference and eight from the symposium are presented in turn rather than mixed. The topics include the future of glass melting through the in-flight melting technique, modifying the surface and interface of silicate glass using supercritical water, studying the fiber structure and elastic properties of silica glass with molecular dynamics simulations, glass-ceramics from kinescope glass cullet, tellurium oxide thin film waveguides for integrated photonics, and the effects of reducing agent on the photoluminescence properties of alkali borosilicate phase-separated glasses doped with copper ion. Only authors are indexed.
