Show Me Science: Science Technology - Glass A Window on the Future
Today’s optoelectronic engineers are developing extremely thin glass that is both durable and scratch resistant. Telecommunications systems require speed and accuracy and glass is proving to be important in developing semiconductors, optical fibers, and multiplexing. Precisely engineered glass is also used in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial telescopes. The Very Large Telescope in Chile uses four individual mirrors, each over eight meters in diameter, to see the details of outerspace.
