Paper Abstract

On a chemical basis, future directions in glass research for optics will emphasize low temperature processing, new materials, and composites. The key contributions from chemistry will come from organometallic synthesis, the application of theoretical chemistry, polymer reaction chemistry, chemical physics, chemical kinetics, polymer glass science and fluorine chemistry. These conclusions were derived from the indicators generated through the AFOSR fundamental glass research program and reflects the new approaches arising through the planning process.
