Ongoing Projects

Basic Research Projects

  • On the validity of CNT and other nucleation theories - σ(r,T); effect of stresses, metastable phase formation, compositional shifts…
  • Trends in homo/heterogeneous nucleation in glasses - structure vs. nucleation mechanism
  • Glass forming ability versus stability
  • Understanding the breakdown of the SE equation for diffusion at ~1.1-1.2Tg
  • Glass relaxation & crystallization – Kauzman’s paradox at ~ 0.5Tg ?
  • Sintering with concurrent crystallization
