Elegant and simple--Stretching during spinodal decomposition aligns porosity in glass

December 2012
American Ceramic Society Bulletin;Dec2012, Vol. 91 Issue 9, p16
The article discusses research on the use of stretch forming method during spinodal decomposition of porous glass monoliths. It references a study by A. Barascu and colleagues, published in the 2012 issue of the "Journal of the American Ceramic Society." It mentions that the method enables researchers to align the porosity of the glass materials.
