Scientists have claimed the finding of another state of matter. A sample of aluminum was bombarded with a synchrotron radiation generator, knocking out one core electron from each atom of aluminum without disrupting the metal’s structure. An interesting fact is that the synchrotron radiation generator puts out extremely short pulses of soft X-ray light that are more powerful than a power plant’s output of electricity to a city.
This transparent state of matter was achieved for a very short time, 4 E-14 seconds, but gave scientists a great deal of hope. This state of matter offers an insight to the possibility of nuclear fusion, which would allow for extremely efficient production of electricity.
