The details of an apparatus designed to produce amorphous phases by rapid quenching from the melt are described. A drop of molten material is squeezed between two copper rollers rotating against each other at 5000 RPM and a thin foil of the material is produced. The system produces cooling rates of the order of 105 K/sec. Details of the development and construction are mentioned.

In the normal study of matter, the ordered state is considered first, followed by the addition of minor disorder or fluctuations, for instance, studying crystalline solids with some quasiparticle excitations like phonons and magnons. The discovery of the universality of critical point phenomena seems to provide a chance to study a regime dominated by the fluctuations. The Onsager solution of the two-dimensional Ising model, exhibiting a logarithmic singularity in heat capacity, and the Fairbank-Buckingham-Kellers experiments, showing such a singularity in the heat capacity near the superfluid transition of liquid4He, are landmarks in this topic. The recent renormalization group theory shows a way of studying the patterns among the fluctuations. The dependence of the critical exponents upon spatial and spin dimensionalities, the existence of universal amplitude ratios and the other aspects of critical phenomena are briefly discussed.

The effect of high pressures on the various properties of the chalcogenide glasses is reviewed. The properties discussed include the mechanical, electrical, optical and magnetic properties. The phenomena of the crystallization of the chalcogenide glasses under high pressure is also discussed.

Statistically averaged lattices provide a common basis to understand the diffraction properties of structures displaying deviations from regular crystal structures. An average lattice is defined and examples are given in one and two dimensions along with their diffraction patterns. The absence of periodicity in reciprocal space corresponding to aperiodic structures is shown to arise out of different projected spacings that are irrationally related, when the grid points are projected along the chosen coordinate axes. It is shown that the projected length scales are important factors which determine the existence or absence of observable periodicity in the diffraction pattern more than the sequence of arrangement.
