Although they were not aware of it, ancient civilizations' production of stained glass windows was done through the use of nanotechnology. In Nanoparticle Study, lab time is used in an attempt to recreate the look of ancient stained glass through the production, isolation, and entrapment of various nanoparticles -including selenium, gold, and silver- in a polymer and glass matrix.
