It's for doing something that somebody already understands. But if it's new technology, it'll open areas nobody's ever thought...

    I spent the morning in the garden with quantities of HCL and peroxide,20 mins of stirring later and the test pieces are ready to look at. Its about .015mm deep right now so the exposure time needs to go up to around an hour to get the effect im looking for. Once I have achieved the...
