Speakers: Dr Paul Warren (NSG)

A very large number of applications of glass involve the control of electromagnetic radiation in the ultra-violet, visible and near infra-red ranges. In this talk we look at some of the properties of glass that make this possible – and explore some of the physics behind examples such as energy-efficient glazing, transparent conducting coatings on glass and optical fibres. We also look at some of the applications of light in the glass-making processes themselves.
