Crystallization and glass formation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

11 Scopus citations


The principal outstanding problems in the areas of glass formation, crystal nucleation and crystal growth are discussed. Each of these areas is seen to provide notable opportunity for improvements in our understanding. Also discussed are anticipated future directions in crystallization and glass formation. These include an expanded range of materials obtained and used as glasses, increasing utilization of rapid quench techniques, and wider use of sol-gel methods and forming glasses by viscous sintering.
