I am afraid this may be more technical than our library is equipped to handle. Our Library focuses on the art and history of glass and glassmaking. I am going to suggest you contact one of these institutions:
The Scholes Library at Alfred University, New York State College of Ceramics. They have a substantial collection of technical information about glass. Their reference desk number is: (607) 871-2951. Alfred’s library catalog is available for searching on the web: http://scholes.alfred.edu.
The Glass Division of the American Ceramic Society (Columbus, Ohio) Website: http://www.acers.org/ The American Ceramic Society, P.O. Box 6136, Westerville, Ohio 43086-6136 ; Phone: (614) 890-4700 ; FAX: 614/899-6109 ; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Society of Glass Technology in Sheffield, UK: Website: http://www.societyofglasstechnology.org.uk/; Don Valley House, Savile Street East, Sheffield S4 7UQ, UK ;Tel: +44(0)114 263 4455 ; Fax +44(0)114 263 4411 ; e-mail: email@example.com
I would also say asking other glass artists would be an excellent idea...posting a question on one of the glass art lists would be a good start and might get you to someone who is doing what you are interested in. Some places to try:
Our studio engineer here suggested you also look at the process for making fused silica....which he thinks includes a gas vapor deposition process.
Please let me know if you have other questions.
