Center for Research, Teaching, and Innovation in Glass

A magneto-optical fiber to detect extremely weak magnetic fields

Brazilian scientists have developed an innovation that can be used in sensors to monitor brain function with even greater sensitivity than existing devices.

Novel water decontamination method combines low-cost composites and solar energy

A simple and affordable solution developed by researchers at CeRTEV and a Nigerian collaborator eliminates even multi-resistant bacteria. Clay, papaya seeds and banana peel are among the raw materials used by the group.

Bioactive material is produced by 3D printing

Researchers at CeRTEV simplifies and cheapens the fabrication of glass-ceramic material that can be used in ocular prosthetics and dentin hypersensitivity treatment, among other applications.

New model facilitates the prediction of crystallization in glass particles

A study by researchers at CeRTEV can help scientists develop new glass and glass-ceramic materials and predict glass stability during use.

Brazilian research on glass gains high visibility

Scientists linked to a FAPESP-funded research center author six of the 25 most downloaded papers from the website of Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, a prestigious publication on amorphous and glassy materials

Brazilian researcher proposes new definition of glass

Glass is a non-equilibrium, non-crystalline state of matter that appears solid on a short time scale but relaxes toward the liquid state. New definition was published in the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids

Researchers share studies of glass and glass-ceramic materials

Research strategies and global database on glass properties presented at Advanced School on Glasses and Glass-Ceramics

Glass ceramic material is effective for treatment of dentin hypersensitivity

Biosilicate is also being tested in ocular implants and artificial middle ear ossicles
