Metastable Liquids and the Nature of the Glass Transition

  • Morrel H. Cohen
  • Gary S. Grest

Abstract

A review is given of the free-volume theory of supercooled liquids in metastable equilibrium. That theory is made the basis for a quantative treatment of atomic and molecular movement which leads in turn to a quantitative treatment of relaxation processes in liquids and glasses. Results for glass transition temperatures and the magnitudes, temperature dependences and dispersions of relaxation rates are in excellent agreement with the experiment. The same theory leads to an explicit model of low-temperature tunneling centers in glasses.
