APSU physics professor receives $300,000 NSF grant to conduct research on innovative glass materials

December 7, 2016

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Crystalline materials form the foundation of virtually all electronic equipment, serve as the engine powering Silicon Valley and have enabled the modern computing revolution.

For the past few years, Austin Peay State University undergraduate students and professors have been traveling the globe to work with some of the world’s leading experts in glass production as they explore possible substitutes for crystalline materials in computing, optical technology and other modern applications.

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – A distraught Queen Victoria asked members of her royal court to stop wearing lavish jewelry in the early 1860s. Her husband, Prince Albert, had just died, and the sight of such opulence offended the mourning queen.
