Scientists open new window on the physics of glass formation
Published: 24 January 2023
Research from an international team of scientists has cast new light on the physics of vitrification – the process by which glass forms. Their findings, which centre on analysis of a common feature of glasses called the boson peak, could help pave the way for new developments in materials science. The team’s paper, titled ‘Understanding the emergence of the boson peak in molecular glasses’, is published in Nature Communications.
