Structure and dynamics of glasses: using novel X-ray tools to push the boundaries of how we understand them

Project description

Research could reveal more clues to the glass structure and dynamics

Glasses are ubiquitous in our daily lives, yet current understanding of their structure and dynamics is very limited. The lack of long-range order prevents the full characterisation of their microscopic structure, whereas they also display dynamical heterogeneity. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the GlassX project will use X-ray diffraction and X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy techniques to thoroughly investigate the structural and dynamic properties of vapour-deposited metallic glasses. Specifically, it will focus on the degree of local anisotropy, the relation between their structure and stability and on dynamic heterogeneities.
