This handbook provides comprehensive treatment of the current state of glass science from the leading experts in the field. Opening with an enlightening contribution on the history of glass, the volume is then divided into eight parts. The first part covers fundamental properties, from the current understanding of the thermodynamics of the amorphous state, kinetics, and linear and nonlinear optical properties through colors, photosensitivity, and chemical durability. The second part provides dedicated chapters on each individual glass type, covering traditional systems like silicates and other oxide systems, as well as novel hybrid amorphous materials and spin glasses. The third part features detailed descriptions of modern characterization techniques for understanding this complex state of matter. The fourth part covers modeling, from first-principles calculations through molecular dynamics simulations, and statistical modeling. The fifth part presents a range of laboratory and industrial glass processing methods. The remaining parts cover a wide and representative range of applications areas from optics and photonics through environment, energy, architecture, and sensing.

Written by the leading international experts in the field, the Springer Handbook of Glass represents an invaluable resource for graduate students through academic and industry researchers working in photonics, optoelectronics, materials science, energy, architecture, and more.


J. David Musgraves obtained a BA degree in Physics at Pomona College, followed by his PhD in Materials Science from the University of Arizona. Following a stint as a postdoc and then Research Professor at Clemson University, he founded IRradiance Glass in 2013. When IRradiance Glass was acquired by Rochester Precision Optics in 2018, he became Chief Scientist there. He is a Jack of All Trades, and Master of None.
Juejun (JJ) Hu is currently the Merton C. Flemings Career Development Associate Professor at MIT's Materials Science and Engineering. He holds a PhD degree (2009) from MIT and a B.S. degree (2004) from Tsinghua University, China, both in Materials Science and Engineering. Prior to joining MIT, Hu was an Assistant Professor at the University of Delaware from 2010 to 2014. His research focuses on glass materials for integrated optics and photonics.
Laurent Calvez graduated in Solid State Chemsitry and Materials Engineering and holds a PhD degree (2006) from the University of Rennes. After a post-doctoral at the University of Arizona he joined the Institute of Chemical Sciences in Rennes, where he is currently an Associate Professor. He is an expert in the field of chalcogenide glasses and glass-ceramics.
