Glass: The nanotechnology connection

Modern applications of glass in such diverse fields as energy, medicine, electronics, photonics, and communications are critically dependent on our awareness and appreciation of the intrinsic connections between glass and nanotechnology. Although glass is seldom if ever mentioned in early texts on nanotechnology, there are numerous examples where the understanding of glass at the nanoscale level has proved transformational in the fabrication and application of this material. As such, glass is a quintessential nanotechnology material.
