About the book

As the title "Tellurite Glasses" suggests that this new book pertains to mentioned tellurite glasses. The study of tellurite glasses is still an emerging research field and has a vast scope. Te based alloys are promising materials for many new applications. With this idea, the aim of the current book is to report the synthesis of tellurite glasses and new tellurite glasses with certain additives. It must include the impact of additives on the properties of thus prepared tellurite glasses with reference to basic tellurite glass. The various types of characterizations of these glasses can be part of this book. The applications and/or future motivations regarding these glasses are the ultimate end of preparation and characterization of tellurite glasses. Since there is lesser literature available in book form pertain tellurite glasses to study these glasses extensively till now, this book intends to serve as a basic book to study these materials as well as further research in this field.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
