Rock Crystal to Be Synthesized
Rock crystal

Synthesis of new materials for the needs of optics can lead to synthesis of rock crystal, Russian researchers say.

      Quartz glass is made of quartz sand of very high quality. In nature pure quartz crystals are known as rock crustal. Rock crystal is the mineral, which synthesis in natural conditions requires millions of years and very specific conditions.

      Researchers study details of rick crystal formation with help of stochastic modeling, which can help predict properties of the material and the process of its synthesis in the real industry.

      Rock crystal is transparent for the ultraviolet radiation up to 180-200 nanometers. The material has high heat capacity and can withstand abrupt temperature changes because of high melting temperature - 1700-2300 degrees Centigrade.
