Why should we be interested in glass?

On Thursday 30 June 2016 at 7.30 pm Dr Anita Zeidler of the University of Bath will speak in the Science Group series on “Why should we be interested in glass?”
Glasses are all around us. They are not just on our noses and in our windows. They found their way into the optoelectronic industry, medicine, military and even the food industry. But what exactly is a glass, how is it made and how do we exploit its indispensable properties? In this presentation we will get to the bottom of these and other questions.
