Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, Collin Barker ’19, and Joshua Miller ’21 presented results of their research at the 25th International Congress on Glass in Boston, Mass., in June. Veenhuizen presented “Ferroelectric domain engineering of lithium niobate single crystal confined in glass.” Barker and Miller gave a poster presentation on “Laser-induced crystallization and reduction of copper-doped lithium niobosilicate glass.” The International Congress on Glass meets every three years and brings together experts in the field of glass science and technology from around the world. Speakers from five continents presented at this year’s conference.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, is the second author on an article published in July 2019 with colleagues from Lehigh University and Corning Incorporated in the journal Crystal Growth and Design. The article, “Challenges of Laser-Induced Single-Crystal Growth in Glass: Incongruent Matrix Composition and Laser Scanning Rate,” focuses on the effect of host glass composition on the laser-induced nucleation and growth of single crystal architectures in LaBGeO5 glass.
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.
Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, has been invited to attend the 2018 Corning Glass Summit to be held in early June at Corning Incorporated. The Corning Glass Summit is a technical conference that brings together glass researchers from industry and academia to discuss the state of the art in glass science and manufacturing.
Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, performed experiments at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee in early January 2018. These experiments explored the piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties of rotating lattice laser-induced crystals in glass. Dr. Veenhuizen will present these results at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Glass and Optical Materials Division in San Antonio, Texas in late May through two oral presentations: “Piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties of lithium niobate crystals lines laser-written deep inside glass,” and, “Fabrication of rotating lattice lithium niobate single crystal lines within lithium niobosilicate glass via femtosecond laser irradiation.”
