Modulated Scanning Calorimetry shows the non-reversing heat flow near to display a sharply defined global minimum in the 0.28 < x < 0.40 range, identified with the self-organized phase (SOP) of titled glasses. NMR, Raman scattering and constraint counting algorithms suggest this phase to consist of two distinct global morphologies; a -rich backbone that has a dimensionality 2< d< 3, and P-rich ribbons that have . The ribbons dominate the physical behavior of stressed rigid (0.40 < x < 0.50) glasses with unusual consequences.
