Using Thin Film Deposition For Art

Thin films are layers of material ranging from fractions of a nanometer to several micrometers in thickness. They are mainly used in semiconductor devices and as optical coatings, for example in solar panel production.

However, the American artist Larry Bell also uses thin films for his cubes that are made of glass and that have been treated through thin film deposition. This process takes place in a vacuum chamber. Vaporized metal alloys settle on the glass surface. Bell does this to enhance the transparent and reflective properties of the glass.

Bell is by far not the first artist to utilize thin films. More than 2,000 years ago, artists and artisans already used thin films of gold and silver for the coating of statues and other objects.

Corsair Releases World’s Fastest LPX Denging Vengeance Memory

The presence of one of the new 16GB Vengeance LPX memory kit models that includes two DDR4 8GB DIMM modules, enables Corsair to register with G.Skill as the fastest DDR4 memory producer in the world today.

Coming with a 4.6GHz clock diusungnya, Vengeance LPX DIMMs have similarities with G.Skill Trident Z memory module that has just been launched. And even like its main competitor, Corsair Vengeance LPX memory module is also equally equipped with features Samsung B-die top-class IC selected to ensure the performance of existing gaming rigs remain stable.

The Vengeance LPX memory module is equipped with CL19-26-26-46 timing memory, and can be operated on a 1.5 volt voltage. In addition to being developed in conjunction with Asrock motherboard makers and equipped with Intel XMP 2.0 support, the memory is reportedly certified for use with Intel Core X-Series processors.
