Amorphous Materials Group (AMAT Group)



The Grand Challenge:
“The deepest and most important unsolved problem in condensed matter science is probably the theory of the nature of glass and the glass transition!”    

------ P.W. Anderson [Science 267, 1616 (1995)]




The Amorphous Materials Group aims to address the grand challenges in the field of amorphous materials (including the structure of glass, the nature of glass transition, the heterogeneity of glass, polyamorphism, the structure-properties relationship of glass and etc.) by using state-of-the-art in situ high pressure and high temperature synchrotron radiation x-ray diffraction, imaging and spectroscopy techniques combined with simulation. AMAT group is also interested in developing new techniques which are dedicated to amorphous materials particularly under high pressure and high temperature.
