Tellurite Glasses Handbook: Physical Properties and Data

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on


Non-crystalline solid tellurite glasses continue to intrigue both academic and industry researchers not only because of their many technical applications, but also because of a fundamental interest in understanding their microscopic mechanisms.

Tellurite Glasses Handbook: Physical Properties and Data is the first and only comprehensive source of physical constants and properties of these unique, non-crystalline solids. The author has collected rigid data from experiments conducted over the last 50 years and presents here their elastic, anelastic, optical, electrical, and thermal properties. He also provides details of the experimental techniques, explores applications, and suggests directions of future research.

The interference and independence of physical processes occurring simultaneously are key problems in material science. With the Tellurite Glasses Handbook, researchers can begin to understand these physical processes, overcome current technological problems, and open up a new area of glass science: the Physics of Non-Crystalline Solids

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A textbook for a material science course at the junior or senior undergraduate level of a curriculum in engineering or related field. Addressing what he perceives as a gap in the understanding of the properties of tellurite glasses among physicists, chemists, and material scientists, El-Mallawany (solid state physics, Menofia U., Egypt) looks at elastic and inelastic, thermal, electrical, and optical properties. He considers both the scientific data and views on applications based on the properties. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
