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.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, is the second author on an article published with colleagues from Lehigh University, Corning Incorporated, and Brookhaven National Laboratory in the journal of Non-Crystalline Solids. The article, Evolution of glass structure during femtosecond laser assisted crystallization of LaBGeO5 in glass, studies the transformations in LaBGeO5 glass structure, such as the formation of Ge nanoparticles and spatial segregation of atomic species, which take place due to femtosecond laser irradiation.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, is the lead author on an article published with colleagues from Lehigh University, Corning Incorporated, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The article, “Ferroelectric domain engineering of lithium niobate single crystal confined in glass,” was published on January 29 in the journal MRS Communications. It also appeared in several on several other sites, including Space Today. The focus of the article was how lithium niobate single crystals, fabricated in glass using a laser, preserve their ferroelectric functionality within the confines of the surrounding glass.
