The Project :

The characterization of the amorphous structure of glass is still a major challenge in Materials Science. It is indeed much more complex than for their crystalline cousins.
The local characterization is even more complex. In the present project we propose to use Transmission Electron Microscopy to measure ‘Pair Distribution Fonctions (e-PDF)’ at the local scale in close collaboration with the world-renown Brussels-based company
Nanomegas. The materials investigated will be opalescent glasses whose optical properties are tuned by the size of the nano- to micro-scale phase separation. Those glasses are developed in collaboration with the European Research Centre of AGC, world leader in flat glass production.
