From orthopaedics to energy security, exploring the unexpected places glass is used in society. When most people think of glass products they think of windows, bottles and jars. However glass and glassy materials play an important part in almost all aspects in modern life. This talk will attempt to explain how the unique properties of glassy materials can be harnessed to solve a multitude of complex issues beyond keeping food and drink fresh and buildings dry.
