Pulse! 1 Glass, Graphene, and Magnesium

Here is the first LASER Pulse! episode. These are short 10-30 minute updates that will fit in between the regular fortnightly release schedule.   Today’s show briefly covers three new materials science news stories that otherwise wouldn’t make it to the full-length shows.

The topics we talk about are:

“Guinness Record: World’s Thinnest Glass Is Just Two Atoms Thick” – Science Daily

“3-D Graphene–Solar Power’s next Platinum?” – Michigan Tech

“Fuel-efficient cars, planes cheaper with Magnesium drawn from ocean” – Phys.org

The next full-length episode is ready to be released on Monday, September 30th.
