Anisotropic Glasses

Goal Melt-quenched glasses are typical example of isotropic materials, however, when processed accordingly anisotropy could be induced in them. This anisotropy is usually observed from the glass properties, e.g., mechanical, or optical. Here, within this project, we reveal the origins of the topological anisotropy in oxide glasses and how the glass properties are affected by it. Moreover, we aim to pave the route for further development and design of new glassed with tailored properties.

Methods: Large-Scale Molecular Dynamics Simulations
