Abstract : As reported by this newspaper based on announcement by the Asahi Glass Corporation of Japan, the world's best performing nonlinear optical material was developed by the Asahi Corporation. The nonlinear three- dimensionality of this new material is 1000 times higher than any known material. This new material is made by spreading fine particles of cuprous chloride (with semiconductor properties) onto a special glass. The fine cuprous chloride particles are only 5 to 10 nanometers in diameter. After the cuprous chloride particles are melted onto the special glass, they are subjected to heat treatment before cooling, thus producing uniform fine particles.
