Glass fabrication

Materials Synthesis and Modification > Material synthesis

Description

Glass fabrication requires incredible temperatures and pressures, but can be harnessed to produce materials that are functionalised towards a large range of applications.

Concocting different mixtures or introducing nanoparticles can result in glass with novel properties – these are then typically used...

  • Description

    The open-air melting capability consists of a melting furnace with maximum temperature of 1200oC and two annealing furnaces with a maximum temperature of 500oC.

  • Related Information

    The open-air glass melting capability is used to produce a range of tellurite glasses; Na-Zn-La-tellurite glass (undoped or doped with fluorescent rare earth ions) is now routinely made in up to 300g raw material batch sizes.
