Vitrification

VitrificationGlass transition or vitrification refers to the transformation of a glass-forming liquid into a glass, which usually occurs upon rapid cooling. It is a dynamic phenomenon occurring between two distinct states of matter, liquid and glass, each with different physical properties. Glass is commonly made using silica and an alkali which is turned into a hard substance using heat fusion.
