Most 'cutting edge' production processes have a certain percentage of
'failures' at the end of the line.

Perhaps some of these 'rejects' could be sold to .edu folks at a cut rate.

I'm referring to cosmetic problems or broken disks etc. that would
still float dramatically but fall short of stringent Quality Control
Standards.

I talked with Dr. Boaz Almog
(boazal@post.tau.ac.il) that is the developer scientist in the group
and also with Mishael Azoulay who is the person that produce those
wafers.

They have showed me the process and it is
a complicated procedure that requires lot of time and also expensive
raw materials. They coat a thin sapphire wafer by a plasma process
that it is their patent. Each wafer takes about 5-7 hours to produce
and the price for each wafer is 5K$.

I will try to convince them to reduce the
price and let you know.

Meanwhile enjoy the chicken soup,

Simcha,

Do you know this group? Can you sneak
into his lab and send us all wafers of this stuff???

Thanks,

Sam
