• Advanced materials: processing glass like a polymer

    3 monthes ago - By Electro IQ

    Pure quartz glass is highly transparent and resistant to thermal, physical, and chemical impacts. These are optimum prerequisites for use in optics, data technology or medical engineering. For efficient, high-quality machining, however, adequate processes are lacking. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed a forming technology to structure quartz glass like a polymer. This innovation is reported in the journal Advanced Materials .
    “It has always been a big challenge to combine highly pure quartz glass and its excellent properties with a simple structuring...
