A 44 Year Search: How do the fundamental physical properties of borate glass reveal its underlying atomic structure: an adventure with undergraduates
In this career review article, I have gone over several key accomplishments that span nearly half a century. The review is divided between my work done at Brown University, as a graduate student (1973–1979), and work done with hundreds of undergraduate physics students at Coe College, as well as with dozens of collaborators around the world (1979–2017). Several important aspects of the work are discussed, including how it was possible to work productively with undergraduates over a large number of years. Spectroscopic and physical property results led to comprehensive models that relate glass structure to property. Data from this research have been made available to researchers through publishing in the literature of the field, as well as in other places such as the SciGlass database. Also, this paper includes selected student outcomes, and a comprehensive list of collaborators and funding sources.
