This volume describes the analysis of the composition and structure of glass and glass ceramics, which lays the foundations for - supervision of production processes, including raw materials, evaporation from the melt, exhaust gases, and environmental concerns;- troubleshooting in case of glass defects in combination with research for the design of faultless (in the ppm range) or at least high-yield processes;- understanding the origin of customer complaints because of unfulfilled expectations concerning material properties or product behaviour.The book is conceived as a monograph. The individual chapters, however, are written by leading Schott experts on the corresponding subjects. Many figures, tables, and examples are chosen to introduce the reader to thin-film science and technology.
