  • Materials power key technological advancements in areas such as communications, consumer electronics, aerospace, automotive and energy. Silica has become the status quo because of its abundance and affordability. Advances in areas such as quantum computing, AI and IoT will require new materials with performance envelope beyond the traditional (i.e. global internet data is rapidly growing beyond petabytes/s/km). A long-time competitor to silica, heavy metal fluoride glasses represent an… CONTINUE READING
