Does fragility of glass formation determine the strength of Tg-nanoconfinement effects?

Abstract

Nanoscale confinement has been shown to alter the glass transition and associated mechanical and transport properties of glass-forming materials. Inspired by expected interrelations between nanoconfinement effects, cooperative dynamics in supercooled liquids, and the "fragility" (or temperature-abruptness) of the glass transition, it is commonly expected… (More)
