Relaxation in amorphous materials: A new approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

2 Citations (Scopus)


The structure of amorphous materials has successfully been described by a lognormal cluster model, and the relaxation process treated on this basis. The model allows a new interpretation of atomic diffusion in amorphous materials. This diffusion has a low-dimensional path through randomly distributed barriers. Results of NMR relaxation time and internal friction peak measurements are explained on this basis.
