Step Forward in the Development of Transparent Aluminum

DailyTech – Researchers Take a Step Forward in the Development of Transparent Aluminum.

Researchers claim to create a new state of matter never before seen on Earth

Oxford University researchers used a soft X-ray laser to create a new transparent aluminum, though it was transparent for just a fraction of a nanosecond.

Using a FLASH laser able to utilize fast pulses of soft X-ray light, the radiation is said to be ten billion times brighter than other high-power devices.  The energy generated by the FLASH laser could have powered a small city.

The powerful beam caused the aluminum to become transparent for a total of 40 femtoseconds, which is only a fraction of a nanosecond, though is a sign of things to come.  Furthermore, all of the power was directed to a location on the aluminum that had a diameter less than a twentieth of the width of a single strand of human hair.
