Latest Transparent materials Stories
University of Texas at Austin researchers have cloaked a three-dimensional object standing in free space for the first time.
Researchers in the Computational Materials Group at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) have uncovered the fundamental limits on optical transparency in the class of materials known as transparent conducting oxides.
The ViewSite Brain Access System has received clearance to be imported and marketed in the People’s Republic of China, unlocking tremendous growth potential for Vycor Medical in this region
Physicists working with the support from the US government said on Wednesday they had devised a “time cloak” that can make time disappear, albeit briefly.
A new Phase I SBIR award from the Army provides a boost to Surmet’s cost effective manufacturing of ALON® and spinel Optical Ceramics.
Corundum is the crystalline form of aluminium oxide and one of the rock-forming minerals. Corundum is naturally clear, but can have different colors when impurities are added. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red, while all other colors are called sapphire. The word corundum comes from the Hindi kurand. The oxygen atoms in corundum are arranged in a hexagonal close-packing, with the smaller aluminium atoms occupying 2/3 of the octahedral gaps. The coordination of the...
Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
