Glass in two forms: heterogeneous electrical relaxation in nanoglassy petalite

Gadermaier, B. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk at conference or symposiumScience to science


Glassy materials with specific functions are almost universally used in our daily life. If prepared via quenching, i.e., by rapid cooling of the molten
glass, a frozen liquid with a high degree of lattice disorder and stress is obtained. The release of stress through mechanical action may significantly
affect the microstructure and dynamic features of the so obtained nanoglass. Considering ion conducting glasses, it has recently been shown that
mechanical treatment of glasses causes the long-range ion transport to significantly decrease. The origin of this astonishing behavior of
nanoglasses is, however, far from being understood completely.
