|Contents:||Part 1 Preparation: definitions; preparation of amorphous materials. Part 2 the glass transition; theories for the glass transition; factors that determine the glass-transition temperature; glass-forming systems and ease of glass formation. Part 3 Structure: microscopic structure - experimental techniques, short-range order, medium-range order, structural modelling; macroscopic structure - experimental techniques, examples of macroscopic structure. Part 4 Atomic dynamics: vibrational excitations; computational methods; experimental probes; low-frequency modes and low temperature properties; two-level systems; ionic conduction. Part 5 Electrons: electronic density of states; localization; transport properties; small polarons; optical properties. Part 6 Defects: types of defect; defect-controlled properties.|
