    I am researching new materials and found that Zeiss , Canon , Nikon and other lithographic equipment makers are waiting the development results from Schott Jena on Lutetium Aluminum Oxide Garnet.
    Well it will be expensive.
    I am not a scientist but I found that lutetium oxide can dissolve in water !
    I want to learn that how much powder can I mix to the water , do powder increase the refractive index with water and how much ? Can I mix titanium dioxide with water ? Do water metal mix goes to acidic and dangerous ?
    Can I move water tio2 mix with electromagnetic force ? I think this is not possible with lutetium but I am not sure .
    I think this can be exotic to mix lots of powders with liquids and change the colors and degrades of picture.
    I loved it.
    AgX , please try to answer.

    Best ,
