Glasses and Optical Materials
Joint Committee Members: 41

    The DGM-DGG joint technical committee ""Glasses and Optical Materials"" as the primary objective to bridge different fields of glass research, and to cross the border between industry and academia. Specifically, it shall bring together the fields of metallic glasses and non-metallic glasses, their properties and structure. In a first focus, mechanical properties and ways towards their knowledge-based design shall be treated. Thereby, specific attention is given also to computational simulation on micro- and mesoscales. The committee therefore acts as a forum for joint and coordinated research efforts, e.g. within the priority program 1594 ""Topological Engineering of Ultrastrong Glasses"" of the German Science Foundation.

    • Covering industrial and scientific topics in the area of glassy materials for applications in optics, energy and compoundation
    • Working on a science-based knowledge of materials properties and structure-property relations on topological to macroscopic length scales
    • Initiating of joint research and development projects: universities, research institutes and industry
    • Interdisciplinary exchange of experiences between neighboring fields of glass research, especially with respect to metallic glasses and traditional inorganic (oxide-) glasses
