Abstract:

This Conference may well serve as a unique, if not the first, comprehensive assessment of the effects of modes of formation on the structure and properties of glasses with an emphasis on what happens above the glass transition range. Obviously, the latter effects cannot be separated from, indeed they interact with, events below the upper limit of the glass transition, the elucidation of which has been the subject of numerous and intensive investigations for several decades. Some consideration, therefore, had to be given to the glass transition at the start of the Conference. Papers presented at the Conference were categorized under th following sections Thermodynamics Reduction oxidation effects Structure and diffusion Electronic states of defects Chalcogenides ion implantation Sol-gel processes EXAFS and structure ESR spectra Thermal effects on equilibria Raman and ESR spectra Thin films and sol-gel process Raman spectra in melted and sol-gel glasses NMR, ESR and Raman spectra.
