Abstract

There is an increasing number of reports of glasses which have distinct microstructures, in contrast to homogenous but random liquid type structures. Evidence is presented that the nature of these microstructures may be influenced by the melting conditions, as well as by composition, and that the microstructure has a dominating influence on glass strength.
