LOW THERMAL EXPANSION GLASS CERAMICS, by Hans Bach, 304 pages, hardbound, published 1995. Describes the fundamental principles, the manufacturing process, and applications of low thermal expansion glass ceramics and explains the composition, structure, and stability of polycrystalline materials having a low thermal expansion. Examples illustrate the formation of this type of glass ceramics by utilizing normal production processes together with controlled crystallization to show how glass ceramics with low thermal coefficients can be produced. 137 illustrations and 18 tables.
