Abstract

Field assisted bonding is achieved for a lithium silicate glass and glass-ceramic and their thin films at N200 degrees C or lower. These materials are commercially available from Corning Glass Co. under the trade name Fotoform Glass and Fotoceram Glass-Ceramic. The Fotoform Glass is amorphous and photosensitive, while the Fotoceram is partially crystalline and more stable thermally.
