PhD Thesis

Properties and kinetics of amorphous phase separation in glasses. Phase separation is a common phenomenon in many materials including polymers, alloys, glasses, and ceramics. The most prominent example of liquid-liquid phase separation in daily life is the separation of water and oil. Such unmixing, where a homogeneous liquid separates into two distinct phases, is also observed in most silicate systems. Phase-separated materials allow the incorporation of distinctively different properties into the same bulk material. This makes them uniquely qualified to tackle modern industrial needs and questions like UV protection, >100% light transmission or ultra-strong, low-brittleness glasses. To assess the applicability of heterogeneous glasses to those needs, we will investigate the properties different nanostructures provide and their change depending on the evolution of those structures
