Most people are easily fascinated by the idea of going deep sea diving, being able to go underwater and marvel at nature’s wonderful creations. However, not all people are brave enough to put on those heavy oxygen tanks and other diving gear just to experience a magical underwater adventure. Fortunately, there is a possibility that diving equipment may not be needed after all – thanks to a group of scientists.
Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark, along with the University of Sydney in Australia, have created a material called the Aquaman Crystal. This material can absorb oxygen in a room and store it in high concentrations. What this means for divers is that there is no need to carry bulky oxygen tanks during deep sea explorations.
Professor Christine McKenzie of the University of Southern Denmark said in a statement:
“A few grains contain enough oxygen for one breath, and as the material can absorb oxygen from the water around the diver and supply the diver with it, the diver will not need to bring more than these few grains.”
The material can draw oxygen from water just as effectively as drawing the gas from air. The Aquaman Crystal remains an interesting material to use in the field of underwater diving.
Scientists have created Aquaman Crystal, a material that can absorb and store oxygen in high concentrations.
Although still in early stages of testing, the Aquaman Crystal could eliminate the need for using bulky oxygen tanks.
The liberation of oxygen from the material can be triggered by heat or low pressure. Scientists are still studying if light can also be used to trigger the release of oxygen from the crystal.
Not only is the Aquaman Crystal promising in the field of diving but also for patients with lung disorders. With the lightweight material, these patients may no longer have to walk around with oxygen tanks just to breathe.
