Super-hot Glass Defies Law of Physics, Opening New Possibilities for Screens

Silicate glass—the type used in display screens and fiber optics—when electrically heated can superheat even to vapor near the anode while remaining solid elsewhere, defying Joule’s first law of thermodynamics. Researchers at Lehigh University have discovered that the electrical field causes a nanoscale change in the structure and chemistry of the glass.
