The Vitreous State
Laboratory (VSL) at The Catholic University of America has been named the recipient of 14 awards from five different sponsors, totaling $5.7 million.
With this system, it is now possible to address the transition from a vitreous state
to a crystal-line in real space by developing a scanning probe microscope that allows the study of its structure over a wide range of temperatures ranging from cryogenic temperatures to 1500 K.
The bubbler technology, which will be used at the site's Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF), was modified from technology by Catholic University's Vitreous State
At about 800[degrees]C special ingredients in the formulation begin to "devitrify." They pass from a vitreous state
to a crystalline state.
The under--cooling state it could be also the result of the presence of olivine and magnetite; their presence being more than 10%, which would favor the crystallization process and from here the vitreous state
in the parts mass.
He began by making an exclusive partnership arrangement with Catholic University's Vitreous State
Laboratory (VSL), which developed and patented a process for converting hazardous waste into glass.
