Someone asked me the other day if I’m computer savvy. I paused and eventually replied, “Well, kind of.” To be honest, it all depends on who’s asking. From my daughter’s perspective, I’m a hopeless dolt when it comes to most electronics. She’s pretty much convinced that, if left to my own devices (no pun intended), I’d flounder and eventually give up, preferring to live like a hermit, in the dark, with no phone or TV (or Snapchat, heaven forbid).
Transparent silicon nitride has been synthesized by researchers at DESY.
June 1, 2017
Scientists at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) have synthesized what is reportedly the first transparent sample of a popular industrial ceramic. The result is a super-hard window made of cubic silicon nitride (SiN) that can potentially be used under extreme conditions like engines, as the Japanese-German team writes in the journal Scientific Reports.
