ICG 4th Summer School "Glasses: Formation, Structure and Strength"
This workshop will overview key fundamentals in glass science with an emphasis on structure?property relationships. Each day will start with a talk on available measurement/simulation methodologies and their contribution to our understanding of glass structure, both on different length scales and for a broad spectrum of inorganic glassforming systems. These lectures will underpin talks on properties and their structural dependence e.g. optical behaviour, viscosity and ageing, nucleation and crystallisation. In this fourth programme of the series, special attention will be given to strength and mechanical properties, and to their relation to structure. The lectures will be
presented by world experts in their fields. A significant aspect of the workshop will be student?centred projects that encourage interactive learning and help you to develop your understanding by applying
what you have learned to specific issues.
