Introduction to Glass Science and Technology (Paperback)
This new edition provides a concise and inexpensive introduction for an undergraduate course in glass science and technology. 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, the composition and properties of vitreous and doped vitreous silicas and a final chapter provides an introduction to a number of methods used to form technical glasses. Although intended primarily as a textbook, it is also invaluable to the engineer or scientist who desires more knowledge regarding the formation, properties and production of glass.
