Python module for scientists working with glass materials

Project description

Welcome to GlassPy

GlassPy is a Python module for scientists working with glass materials.

What is it?

The aim is to provide classes and functions written in Python for materials scientists working with glass and non-crystalline materials. The hope is that with an open and collaborative project, we can build a reliable toolset to support faster and reproducible research on this topic.

How to install

The source code is hosted on GitHub at:

Binary installers for the latest released version are available at the Python Package Index. To install GlassPy using pip run

pip install glasspy

To install the latest development version of GlassPy run

pip install --upgrade git+git://


GlassPy was born as a personal tool back in 2013 when I started coding with Python. It is based on a colection of MATLAB code that I wrote for the Glass State graduate course of 2010 and for the numerical analysis during my PhD.

Right now, I'm sorting all my code and adequately documenting it to build this Python module. My personal objective is to increase the reproducibility of my research and hopefully be useful for researchers working in the field of glass science.


There is no documentation right now, but all the functions have detailed docstring.

Some examples are provided as notebooks in Google Colab (they run in the cloud, so you can test GlassPy without the need of installing anything on your machine):


Other python repositories for glass science

  • RelaxPy - Module to compute glass relaxation kinetics.
  • PyGlass - Module to simulate the specific heat signature of glasses with a specified thermal treatment following the Tool-Narayanaswamy-Moynihan model.
