6.1   Introduction

Two material characteristics separate glasses from other solids: (1) glasses have noncrystalline structures and, (2) instead of melting when heated, a solid glass slowly transforms to a liquid in a temperature range defined as the glass transition.

The short-range (polyhedral level) bond structure of glasses and crystals are similar. For example, the structure of amorphous silica consists of silicon tetrahedra linked by bi-coordinated oxygen, the same short-range bonding as found in crystalline quartz. Recent ...
