and Ericsson have achieved what is believed to be the world's first 5G mobile telecommunications using an antenna embedded in synthetic fused silica glass to transmit and receive 28 GHz 5G radio signals for stable, high-speed mobile communication in buildings, vehicles and trains.
Opportunities could soon be on the horizon for laser manufacturers, thanks to a new type of cold storage technology under development by Microsoft Research and the University of Southampton, in which ultrafast lasers are being used to scribe digital information into silica glass.
Despite the water underneath, there is not a single surface level water source for 150 square miles, which is extreme even for the Sahara At the southern end of the sand sea lies the silica glass field which is home to amazing yellow-green glass pebbles and is the only instance of this natural phenomenon ever found.
