Speakers: Professor R. J. Newport, University of Kent

Making glass is one of our oldest technologies, refined and developed through the millennia and having an impact in all aspects of modern life. From its deceptively simple beginnings,  glass has found a place in art and technology: a material of beauty as well as utility.

In our current century, glassy materials are now used as smart drug delivery systems and even as scaffolds for regenerating a patient’s lost bone. In his talk Bob Newport will try to unravel some of the science behind glass and to reveal aspects of modern research into its atomic scale properties.
