    This article discusses prevention of heat loss by making few changes in household. Keep in mind that with single-glazed (single-pane) windows, people could lose up to twice as much heat as they would with double-glazed windows. The difference is even more striking with triple glazing, which is...

    The time dependence of both the photoluminescence due to carrier recombination and the gratings created by degenerate four-wave mixing were measured in semiconductor-doped colorfilter glasses. Values ranging from 80 to less than 16 ps (laser pulse width limited) are measured in several different...

    Using microlithographic techniques to define the Ag sensitized area, the lateral profile of Ag diffusion in GexSe1-x (x≊0.1) glass is made directly visible with an optical microscope. Experimental measurements have verified that Ag photodoping in Ge0.1Se0.9 glass obeys Fick’s...

    The dependence of glass viscosity on the growth of semiconductor (CdS) quantum dots in borosilicate glass matrices is studied systematically. The glass viscosity was varied (3000-260 000 Pa s) by varying the glass compositions of constituent oxides and growth temperatures. Thus, grown dot sizes...
