This 1,600-Year-Old Goblet Shows that the Romans Were Nanotechnology Pioneers

This 1,600-Year-Old Goblet Shows that the Romans Were Nanotechnology Pioneers | Ancient Mysteries | Scoop.it

The colorful secret of a 1,600-year-old Roman chalice at the British Museum is the key to a super­sensitive new technology that might help diagnose human disease or pinpoint biohazards at security checkpoints.

The glass chalice, known as the Lycurgus Cup because it bears a scene involving King Lycurgus of Thrace, appears jade green when lit from the front but blood-red when lit from behind—a property that puzzled scientists for decades after the museum acquired the cup in the 1950s. The mystery wasn’t solved until 1990, when researchers in England scrutinized broken fragments under a microscope and discovered that the Roman artisans were nanotechnology pioneers: They’d impregnated the glass with particles of silver and gold, ground down until they were as small as 50 nanometers in diameter, less than one-thousandth the size of a grain of table salt. The exact mixture of the precious metals suggests the Romans knew what they were doing—“an amazing feat,” says one of the researchers, archaeologist Ian Freestone of University College London.

Keith Mielke's insight:

This Article was very fascinating to me since I have such an intrest in engineering. It is amazing how Romans found this correlation between very finely ground particles and their combinations to create such an amazing piece of art and science.
