The topics of the joint committee (GA) include materials design and modeling, phase and microstructure formation of glassy-crystalline multifunctional materials.
The GA is a cooperation between the Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft (DGG) and the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (DKG). At least one meeting is held annually on a changing thematic focus with technical presentations. Discussions and reports on the activities of the joint committee are rounded off by visits to the host companies.
The GA promotes the exchange of experience between experts from the border areas of glass and ceramics on the fundamentals and technologies of multifunctional glassy-crystalline materials and material types. Among its goals, the working group declares to open up new application possibilities of glassy-crystalline materials and to promote new manufacturing technologies.
The GA's projects include: conducting interlaboratory comparisons, organizing student and staff exchanges, and preparing joint documentation.
