Publication of the book “From glass to crystal – Nucleation, growth and demixing, from research to applications”

Glass-ceramics are materials that are increasingly used in our daily lives, despite having been known for less than a century. This book provides a theoretical and experimental overview of crystallization in glass and glass-ceramics.

This book reviews recent developments in the mechanisms of nucleation, crystal growth and phase separation, bringing together theoretical aspects, characterisation methods and current and future applications of the various families of glass-ceramics.

This educational reference book is aimed at students (masters, doctorate, engineering students), teachers, researchers, engineers and professionals working on glass-ceramics and glasses, for the glass industry, on microscopy and spectroscopy techniques… or simply anyone wishing to discover the fascinating world of the transformation of glass into crystal and the glass-crystal hybrid materials resulting from this transformation…

Daniel R. Neuville, Director of Research at the IPGP, studies vitreous and molten silicates, linking their structure at high temperature to thermodynamic and rheological properties, with applications ranging from the glass industry to volcanology.

Laurent Cormier, CNRS Research Fellow, studies the structure-properties relationships of glasses and oxide liquids to better understand nucleation and the role of nucleating agents in the formation of glass ceramics.

Daniel Caurant, CNRS Research Fellow, is studying the relationships between the composition, structure, crystallisation and properties of oxide glasses rich in rare earths or transition metals.

Lionel Montagne, Professor at the University of Lille 1, is studying the relationships between the structure and properties of glasses and glass-ceramics, in particular using solid-state NMR.
