Extreme creep resistance in a microstructurally stable nanocrystalline alloy : N...
8 orders of magnitude better creep resistance than other nanocrystalline alloys, but nanocrystalline alloys are 4 mangitudes worse than coarse grained alloys, so net is 4 orders of magnitude better...

High Elastic Moduli of a 54Al2O3-46Ta2O5 Glass Fabricated via Containerless Processing : Scientific Reports
New high strength glass, but it requires a high temperature air levitation furnace setup (which is expensive to operate), and uses tantalum, which is stupid expensive. The glass by weight of the component ingredients alone would cost more than silver by weight.

Laser_induced_fission_of_Th.pdf (application/pdf Object)
A variation on the accelerator driven thorium system theme, with a laser induced plasma pumping electrons into a tantalum target, dumping gamma (X-ray) into thorium. Rather than a traditional ADSR which fires electrons into a target for neutron spallation into thorium.
