Melt Homogenization and Self-Organization in Chalcogenides-Part II
Bhosle, Siddhesh; Gunasekera, Kapila; Boolchand, Punit; et al.

The compositional variation of the non-reversing enthalpy at Tg, ΔHnr(x), in GexSe100−x glasses decreases abruptly by an order of magnitude as x increases to xc(1) = 19.5(5)%, the rigidity transition, and then remains minuscule till x increases to xc(2) = 26.0(5)%, when the term abruptly increases by an order of magnitude as glasses become stressed-rigid. The rigid but unstressed networks formed in between these two transitions represent the Intermediate Phase (IP). Read the entire abstract.

An Overview of the Structure and Properties of Silicon-Based Oxynitride Glasses
Becher, Paul F.; Hampshire, Stuart; Pomeroy, Michael J.; et al.

The silicon oxynitride glasses take advantage of nitrogen bonding to attain high elastic modulus, increased softening temperatures and viscosities, greater slow crack growth resistance, and modest gains in fracture resistance. Of the oxynitride glasses, the Si–Y–Al-based oxynitride glasses have been most extensively studied and a degree of success has been achieved in understanding how changes in glass composition affect structural parameters and their relationship with properties.

Melt Homogenization and Self-Organization in Chalcogenides-Part I
Bhosle, Siddhesh; Gunasekera, Kapila; Boolchand, Punit; et al.

An FT-Raman profiling method is developed to monitor growth of structural homogeneity of binary GexSe100-x melts in real time (tR) non-invasively as starting materials are reacted over days. Raman spectra of quenched melts were acquired along a one inch long column of a sample in a quartz tube. In the first step of reaction, tR < 2 days, Ge-rich crystalline- and glassy- phases form and coexist with Se-rich glasses. Read the entire abstract.

Through a Glass, Darkly: Dispelling Three Common Misconceptions in Glass Science
Mauro, John C.

The field of glass science is at a critical juncture. With many recent advances in theoretical glass physics, computational capabilities, and processing and characterization technology, there has surely never been a more exciting time to be a glass scientist. However, much of our current glass science education focuses on concepts that have been rejected based on a combination of rigorous theory and experimental observations. Read the entire abstract.

High-Power Solid-State Lasers: a Laser Glass Perspective
Campbell, John H.; Hayden, Joseph S.; Marker, Alex

Advances in laser glass compositions and manufacturing have enabled a new class of high-energy/high-power (HEHP), petawatt (PW), and high average power (HAP) laser systems that are being used for fusion energy ignition demonstration, fundamental physics research, and materials processing, respectively. The requirements for these three laser systems are different, necessitating different glasses or groups of glasses. Read the entire abstract.

Multimaterial Fibers
Tao, Guangming; Abouraddy, Ayman F.; Stolyarov, Alexander M.

Recent progress in combining multiple materials with disparate optical, electronic, and thermomechanical properties monolithically in the same fiber drawn from a preform is paving the way to a new generation of multimaterial fibers endowed with unique functionalities delivered at optical fiber length scales and costs. A wide range of unique devices have been developed to date in fiber form-factor using this strategy, such as transversely emitting fiber lasers, fibers that detect light, heat, or sound impinging on their external surfaces, and fibers containing crystalline semiconductor cores.

A Prospective for New Mid-Infrared Medical Endoscopy Using Chalcogenide Glasses
Seddon, Angela B.

That chalcogenide glasses potentially provide a solution for mid-infrared medical endoscopy is discussed in detail for the first time. It is shown that chalcogenide glass fiber optics could underpin new mid-infrared medical endoscopic systems for real-time molecular sensing, imaging, and analysis of tissue and for fiber laser surgery at new mid-infrared wavelengths. Moreover, chalcogenide glass fiber optic and waveguide devices and systems could provide the key to new mid-infrared communications for molecular sensing to inform decision-taking in other sectors as diverse as manufacturing, energy, the environment, and security.Read the entire abstract.

Preventing Sodium Poisoning of Photocatalytic TiO2 Films on Glass by Metal Doping
Kurtoglu, Murat Erdem; Longenbach, Travis; Gogotsi, Yury

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) has received much attention as a photocatalyst, specifically in applications that require a mechanically robust thin film. TiO2 is particularly useful because it does not absorb visible light, making it well suited for coatings on glass. Photocatalytic activity of TiO2 films is strongly dependent on the substrate and it has been well established that sodium diffusion from glass has a negative effect on this activity.

Study of Lanthanum Aluminum Silicate Glasses for Passive and Active Optical Fibers
Litzkendorf, Doris; Grimm, Stephan; Schuster, Kay; et al.

We are reporting on SiO2-Al2O3-La2O3 glasses—with and without Yb2O3—suitable for nonlinear and fiber laser applications. We will also be presenting successful supercontinuum generation and fiber laser operation around 1060 nm in step-index fibers. We optimized the glass compositions in terms of thermal and optical requirements for both a high La2O3 and Yb2O3 concentration and good compatibility with a silica cladding.

Magnesium-Containing Bioactive Glasses for Biomedical Applications
Diba, Mani; Tapia, Felipe; Boccaccini, Aldo R.; et al.

The importance of Mg in the human body, its key role in bone tissue development, in addition to its application to improve and modify physical, thermal, and mechanical properties of bioactive silicate glasses, make Mg a very interesting element as a component of bioactive glasses for medical applications. Although Mg is a typical element in the composition of numerous developed bioactive glasses, the analysis of the literature reveals that further research is required to gain comprehensive understanding about the effects of MgO on bioactive glass structure and properties.
