"The deepest and most interesting unsolved problem in solid state theory is probably the theory of the nature of glass and the glass transition."
-- P.W. Anderson, Science 267 (1995) p. 1615.
The Warwick Physics Department has a long-established reputation for research and development in glass and glass-ceramics, both for direct applications (e.g. encapsulation of toxic waste) and in fundamental structural studies to improve our knowledge of these materials. We utilise a wide-range of techniques in our research to extract the most information possible about these fascinating materials.
