MSE Seminar: “Thermodynamic contributions to glass fragility”

February 3 at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Liquid fragility characterizes the rate of drop off in viscosity of a glass-forming liquid as its temperature increases above the glass transition. This property is fundamental to glass physics and of critical importance for engineering applications, yet its origin is unclear. Competing theories suggest that vibrational properties may play a role in fragility by contributing entropy to the large excess entropy of the undercooled liquid over the crystal above the glass transition. In this talk, we will demonstrate the use…
