Definition of the noun Aerogel
What does Aerogel mean as a name of something?
noun - plural: aerogels
- A solid-state substance similar to gel where the liquid component is replaced with gas.
Aerogel is a synthetic porous ultralight material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is a solid with extremely low density and low thermal conductivity. Nicknames include frozen smoke, solid smoke, solid air, or blue smoke owing to its translucent nature and the way light scatters in the material. It feels like fragile expanded polystyrene to the touch. Aerogels can be made from a variety of chemical compounds.
- also known as 气凝胶

A Sharpie pen being held up by a two inch square block of aerogel (also called "solid smoke" or "frozen smoke"). Note that the absorption and scattering properties of the aerogel make it look hazy blue against the black background, and slightly yellow against the paper. The aerogel block here weighs approximately 500 milligrams.

Aerogel has a density lower than any other solid, and makes for excellent insulation (especially for shuttles and other air craft). Individual granules are near invisible and seem to almost float when removed from the vial. Unfortunately, Aerogel is expensive to produce. Pretty cool stuff, though.
