The material, developed by Ying Wang and Norman Herron of the DuPont Experimental Station in Wilmington, Del., consists of tiny particles of X- ray-absorbing bismuth triiodide mixed into flexible nylon.
If the particles are too big-even millionths of a meter-the material loses its desirable properties and behaves more like pure bismuth triiodide.
The optimum concentration is about 50 percent bismuth triiodide by weight.
