Kinetic phenomena in glass-forming systems group

Group specialization

The group specializes in study of chalcogenide glass-forming materials. The research attempts to provide better understanding and description of complex processes (e.g.: structural relaxation, crystallization) with respect to the measured physical properties (thermal expansion, heat capacities, viscosity, …..) of these materials. The main topics are:

  • study of nucleation and crystal growth in supercooled glass-forming materials using microscopy and calorimetry
  • study of structural relaxation in the glass forming region
  • analysis and theoretical description of kinetic processes taking place in supercooled melts, glasses and amorphous materials
  • viscosity measurements of glass-forming materials in wide temperature range
  • heat capacity measurements of solids
  • study of surface self-diffusion in amorphous materials
