11th ICG Montpellier Summer School
A. GLASS FORMATION, STRUCTURE, AND PROPERTIES
B. HAZARDOUS WASTE VITRIFICATION
The workshop is composed of two interwoven threads.
The first thread overviews fundamentals in glass science emphasising structure-property relationships, experimental techniques, material simulations and tools that probe structure. Specific properties and applications will be discussed e.g. optical behaviour, transport phenomena, nucleation and crystallisation, and strength.
The second thread this year focuses on glasses for hazardous waste immobilization, to echo the importance of the nuclear industry and other significant areas of waste disposal. Attention isgiven to glass formulation and structure, long-term corrosion behavior, as well as melting technologies for nuclear waste glasses.
