Scientists produce gold, silver, copper foams

The ultra-low density gold, silver and copper foams are so tiny that they it can ride on a mosquito’s back. Pictured here is a mosquito standing on cotton fibers carrying a sample of the gold aerogel. Photo by Joshua DeOtte, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Scientists at the US Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory created ultra-low density gold, silver and copper foams to give physicists better X-ray sources to employ in experiments at the National Ignition Facility.
This facility is a large laser-based inertial confinement fusion research device that uses lasers to heat and compress a small amount of hydrogen fuel with…
