The paper presents an overview of the centuries-old evolution of glass formulations, technologies, and applications throughout the history of civilization. We show the role of glass in works of art, in manufacture of housewares, as a transparent and translucent material in construction, and in applications such as optics and laser technology, reinforcement for composites, and transparent armor. 


Concentrated neodymium laser glasses (review)
A review is given of spectral, luminescent, lasing, and some physicochemical properties of concentrated neodymium phosphate glasses (CNPG's). Causes of weak quenching of Nd3+ luminescence in CNPG's
