Center for Research, Teaching, and Innovation in Glass

Brazilian research on glass gains high visibility

Scientists linked to a FAPESP-funded research center author six of the 25 most downloaded papers from the website of Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, a prestigious publication on amorphous and glassy materials

Brazilian researcher proposes new definition of glass

Glass is a non-equilibrium, non-crystalline state of matter that appears solid on a short time scale but relaxes toward the liquid state. New definition was published in the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids

Researchers share studies of glass and glass-ceramic materials

Research strategies and global database on glass properties presented at Advanced School on Glasses and Glass-Ceramics

Glass ceramic material is effective for treatment of dentin hypersensitivity

Biosilicate is also being tested in ocular implants and artificial middle ear ossicles

New bioglass reduces risk of titanium implant failure

Material developed at Brazilian university accelerates formation of bone tissue and prevents proliferation of bacteria on surface of dental and orthopedic prostheses

New materials for any job

FAPESP Week California spotlights technologies for particle control and glass-ceramic compounds, both having applications in a variety of fields

Biomaterial stimulates bone cell formation

Study shows that vitroceramics, together with low-intensity laser light (photo), aid in healing bone defects in rats
