Optical Spectroscopy of Glass

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Optical spectroscopic methods offer an important means to investigate glass structure and its associated dynamics. Moreover, they provide a set of powerful tools to evaluate material optical performance for a broad range of applications. Successful use of optical spectroscopy requires an understanding of intrinsic phenomena associated with the interaction of light with matter, of concerns surrounding measurement tools and techniques, and of data analysis and interpretation. While not intended to be an exhaustive examination of all techniques and phenomena, the present work seeks to highlight concepts of significant interest to the study of solid-state material atomic and electronic structure, and associated optical spectroscopic properties, in the context of the study and application of glass.
