Glass Science (Science & Technology of Materials)


(as of Jun 11,2019 14:28:41 UTC – Details)

This edition retains its pedagogical structure but has been extensively revised and updated. Features advances in the field pertaining to the latest developments on fatigue and fracture as well as environmental aspects of some hazardous materials and their effects on glass during long term storage. Contains a new description of the oxidation state of glass and its components based on the phase rule. Includes a new chapter on chemical durability with recent information regarding corrosion of glass and radioactive waste disposal.

Fundamentals of Inorganic Glasses


(as of May 17,2019 22:05:58 UTC – Details)

Fundamentals of Inorganic Glass is intended to be a textbook on glass science suitable for teaching at a junior/senior level in a materials curriculum. Emphasis has been placed upon developing the fundamental concepts, whether they were ultimately proven wrong or not. As such, the book may also be useful to industrial scientists and engineers who are attempting to acquire a basic knowledge in glass. This revised second edition updates key topics, makes the book friendlier to the student, and corrects some of the typographical errors in the first edition.

Coloured Glasses

(as of Apr 17,2019 02:16:23 UTC – Details)

The constitution of coloured glasses, the colours of glasses produced by various colouring ions and other additions are explained in this classic work. The colours of glasses produced by non-metallic elements; sulphur, selenium, tellurium, phosphorus, and their compounds. The colours produced by metal atoms; gold, silver and copper. In addition, fluorescence, thermoluminescence and solarisation are also described.

Flexible Glass: Enabling Thin, Lightweight, and Flexible Electronics (Roll-to-Roll Vacuum Coatings Technology)

$225.00 - $174.12

(as of Mar 19,2019 22:16:24 UTC – Details)

This book details flexible glass properties that enable use in emerging electronic and opto-electronic applications. Discussion includes flexible glass advantages compared to alternative substrate materials. Examples describe flexible glass in processes such as vacuum deposition, monolithic integration, printing, and roll-to-roll. Flexible glass demonstrations in emerging applications such as photovoltaics, flexible displays, and optical interconnects are also detailed.

 The reader will find in this unique book: 

  • Discussion of flexible glass processing and mechanical reliability.
  • Demonstration of flexible glass in roll-to-roll (R2R) fabrication processes.
  • Flexible glass substrate examples in displays, sensors, and photovoltaics.
  • Flexible glass ecosystem description for identification of new applications.

Glass: Mechanics and Technology

$196.00 - $151.50

(as of Feb 14,2019 07:15:49 UTC – Details)

Glass is a material with essentially unlimited application possibilities. This second edition of a comprehensive reference in glass science, points out the correlation between the performance of industrial processes and practice-relevant properties, such as strength and optical properties. Interdisciplinary in his approach, the author discusses both the science and technology, starting with an outline of history and applications, glass structure, and rheology.
The sections on properties include mechanical strength and contact resistance, ageing, mechanics of glass processes, the production and control of residual stresses, high-tech products, and current research and development. Applications include glazing, packaging, optical glass, glass fibers for reinforcement, and abrasive tools. The development of touchscreen technology showed how important were the design and resistance of thin flexible glass and these new thin aluminosilicate glasses are also discussed.

Introduction to Glass Science and Technology: RSC (RSC Paperbacks)

$42.00 - $35.77

(as of Oct 12,2018 00:45:29 UTC – Details)

This book provides a concise and inexpensive introduction for an undergraduate course in glass science and technology. The level of the book has deliberately been maintained at the introductory level to avoid confusion of the student by inclusion of more advanced material, and is unique in that its text is limited to the amount suitable for a one term course for students in materials science, ceramics or inorganic chemistry. The contents cover the fundamental topics of importance in glass science and technology, including glass formation, crystallization, phase separation and structure of glasses. Additional chapters discuss the most important properties of glasses, including discussion of physical, optical, electrical, chemical and mechanical properties. A final chapter provides an introduction to a number of methods used to form technical glasses, including glass sheet, bottles, insulation fibre, optical fibres and other common commercial products. In addition, the book contains discussion of the effects of phase separation and crystallization on the properties of glasses, which is neglected in other texts. Although intended primarily as a textbook, Introduction to Glass Science and Technology will also be invaluable to the engineer or scientist who desires more knowledge regarding the formation, properties and production of glass.
