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.

Sam, dale and all,



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

Simcha,



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



Thanks,



Sam
