Other topics of the 400+ papers include measuring the diameter of cashmere and wool, the structural characteristics of rabbit hair, the acoustical absorption coefficient of non-woven fabrics, and the advantages of a basalt glass
flake coating for marine anti-corrosion.
10 are shown Raman spectra of the original basalt glass
fibre with bands at 503 and 940 [cm.sup.-1].
The basalt glasses
are remarkably primitive, having Mg#s >0.6 (and many with a Mg# near 0.7), and low total alkalis (Fig.
