The present one is the second NATO School devoted to research on disordered condensed matter, mainly liquid and amorphous metals. This time the title contains the word "materials" to explicitely include those aspects of the glassy state of insulators either shared with metallic glasses - e.g. the glass tran sition - or on the border line with metallic systems - e.g. the metal non-metal transition.

Considerable exploratory work on amorphous and liquid semiconductors was done by the Leningrad School since the early fifties. In recent years, much research in several countries was directed to deepen the understanding of the structural, electronic, optical, vibrational, magnetic and other proper ties of these materials and to possibly approach the present level of under standing of crystalline semiconductors. About this book The first book to comprehensively cover the burgeoning new class of soft materials known as functional organic liquids Functional organic liquids, a new concept in soft matter materials science, exhibit favorable properties compared to amorphous polymers and ionic liquids. This book has its origins in the Spring College held at the Interna tional Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste. The primary aim is to give a broad coverage of liquids and amorphous solids, at a level suitable for graduate students and research workers in condensed-matter physics, physical chemistry, and materials science. This chapter focuses on liquids and amorphous materials that are characterised structurally by their localised order. Although ice, water, and steam are chemically the same material, they differ greatly in their physical properties. Below 0°C, and under normal atmospheric pressure, the water molecules are held in place by a regular and repeating network of hydrogen bonds, defined by its long.
About this book An in-depth study of non-crystalline solids in which the arrangement of the atoms do not have long-range order. Describes the way amorphous solids are formed, the phenomenology of the liquid-to-glass and glass- to-liquid transition, and the technological applications. Amorphous material is one kind of nonequilibrium material; its characteristic of atomic arrangement is more like liquid and has no long-range periodicity. The glass-forming ability of an alloy is closely related to its composition, and is quite different in various alloys. Amorphous metal, also known as metallic glass, is a solid metallic material with disordered atomic-scale produce of amorphous metal must require an extremely fast cooling rate to prevent the nucleation of crystalline phases. As a structural and functional material, it has drawn increasing attention from both the scientific and industrial communities due to its unique characteristic. An amorphous, translucent solid is called a glass An amorphous, translucent solid. A glass is a solid that has been cooled too quickly to form ordered crystals.. Almost any substance can solidify in amorphous form if the liquid phase is cooled rapidly enough.
