Student researcher Jacob Franklin ’23 (physics) and alumnus Collin Barker ’19 (physics) are co-authors with Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, on an article published in the peer-reviewed journal Optical Materials. Dr. Veenhuizen is the lead author of the article, “The role of glass composition in the 3D laser fabrication of lithium niobate single crystal in lithium niobosilicate glass,” which explains how glass composition controls the nucleation and growth of crystals in glass and how this can be leveraged to create single crystals, a valuable result for making single crystal architectures in glass for optical applications. Co-authors of the article also include collaborators from Lehigh University and Corning Incorporated.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics and director of cooperative engineering, Olivia Magneson ’23, and Jacob Franklin ’23 presented results of their research at the virtual Glass and Optical Materials Division (GOMD) 2021 Annual Meeting in December. Veenhuizen presented the talk, “Effect of glass composition on the laser-induced nucleation and growth of lithium niobate crystals in lithium niobosilicate glass.” Magneson gave a poster presentation titled, “Phase-selective laser-induced crystallization of lead bismuth gallate glass,” and Franklin gave a poster presentation titled, “Formation of continuous lithium niobate single crystals in lithium niobosilicate glass via femtosecond laser irradiation.” GOMD 2021 brings together researchers in industry and academia to share findings about glass science and technology.
