Rare earths in sol-gel glasses

Purpose of this website

This website was created as an archive of the sol-gel glass research performed by Dr. Dan Boye of Davidson College, Dr. Ann Silversmith of Hamilton College, Dr. Kurt Hoffman of Whitman College and their undergraduate research students.  It is to be used primarily as a teaching tool for their work.  The information presented in professional publications and given at conferences is the product of their best understanding at the time.  It should be kept in mind, however, that other ideas and information presented on the website are part of a continual learning process and may not be fully refined or, in a few places, even correct.  If a visitor has questions about our research or what is presented on this website, they should contact either Dan Boye (daboye@davidson.edu), Ann Silversmith (asilvers@hamilton.edu) or Kurt Hoffman (hoffman@whitman.edu).
