Glass-forming ability: fundamental understanding leading to smart design

0

(Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo) Researchers studied the glass-forming ability of two simple systems, establishing the 'thermodynamic interface penalty,' which is an indicator of the extent of the structural difference between a crystal and its melt. The fundamental understanding acquired is expected to lead to physics-driven design of glassy materials, allowing for better control and tailoring, and aiding advances in the manufacture of numerous materials including metallic alloys.
