          Abstract

          Supercooled liquids and glasses are important for current and developing technologies. Here we provide perspective on recent progress in this field. The interpretation of supercooled liquid and glass properties in terms of the potential energy landscape is discussed. We explore the connections between amorphous structure, high frequency motions, molecular motion, structural relaxation, stability against crystallization, and material properties. Recent developments that may lead to new materials or new applications of existing materials are described.

            Phase-change materials for rewriteable data storage.

            Phase-change materials are some of the most promising materials for data-storage applications. They are already used in rewriteable optical data storage and offer great potential as an emerging non-volatile electronic memory. This review looks at the unique property combination that characterizes phase-change materials. The crystalline state often shows an octahedral-like atomic arrangement, frequently accompanied by pronounced lattice distortions and huge vacancy concentrations. This can be attributed to the chemical bonding in phase-change alloys, which is promoted by p-orbitals. From this insight, phase-change alloys with desired properties can be designed. This is demonstrated for the optical properties of phase-change alloys, in particular the contrast between the amorphous and crystalline states. The origin of the fast crystallization kinetics is also discussed.
