The April issue of Silver News also features some fascinating technological developments relating to silver.

  • Advances in silver nanotechnology are lowering the cost and expanding the lifespan of water filtration systems. This is opening the door for large-scale water purification projects that promise to increase supplies of fresh water in low-income countries.
  • The worldwide nanosilver market is expected to hit $2.4 billion by 2023. This represents a compound annual growth rate of 14.8%. Nanosilver has a wide range of applications, including food packaging, textile manufacturing, filtration, purification and neutralization processes in the water treatment industry, personal care products, detergents, and optics.
  • A Beijing-based company recently unveiled a miniature 3D metal printer designed to produce gold and silver jewelry. Because of its precision abilities, it may also find applications in aerospace, research tools, and medical equipment.
  • Scientists say silver iodide cloud seeding in Los Angeles during a recent storm produced 15% more rain.
  • Chinese scientists have developed an ‘invisible’ electrical circuit inside a polymer used in producing contact lenses. The circuit is invisible to the naked eye because it is formed by silver wires measuring just one micrometer wide — narrower than the diameter of a typical bacterial cell. This could lead to wearbles that measure glucose levels in diabetics.

Finally, there is s fascinating article about an artist who took images of a silver particles from 140-year-old photos, enlarged them, and turned them into sculptures.
