“Technical glass products in the service of humans”
Technical glass products have brought much comforts to human living over the several millennia. Glass windows, lenses, light bulbs, communication optical fibers, and semiconducting glasses are just a few notables. Contribution of glass as a material to the service of humans was recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in its declaration of 2022 as the International Year of Glass. In this presentation, we continue that celebration by briefly reviewing three of the many topics associated with the use of glass products in the service of humans: strength, healthcare, and sustainability.
