The Nature of the Amorphous State

  • B. G. Bagley


This chapter is a brief introduction to the general concepts and definitions of the amorphous state. Techniques for the characterization of amorphous materials and their transformations are reviewed. Also, structural and chemical changes which can lead to inhomogeneities, and the detection of these inhomogeneities, are discussed. Because of the difficulty in completely characterizing amorphous materials, one must be aware of the possible structures, transformations, and inhomogeneities which can occur in order to better interpret measured properties.
