For any glass of interest, one can display a table where all essential information concerning the experimental procedure for this glass and other glasses of the same series are presented. such as the methods and procedure of glass syntheses, sample preparation, and property measurements.

Example of a Query


These query conditions suppose to find all experimental data on density of binary sodium silicate glasses.


This gives the following list of glasses:

  The table containing data for a selected glass may be opened in the way similar to the one shown in Example of a Query. Data from the tables may be then plotted or exported.

The graphs and tables produced and displayed on the screen can be printed or copied to the Clipboard, saved as ASCII files, or placed into an Excel spreadsheet directly from the Clipboard.
