I was told that strontium titanate is heat sensitive and should not
be removed from the dop by heating the dop.
I have a nice SRB sitting in acetone for longer than I am interested
in waiting and still can not get it off.
I find it hard to believe that anything would happen to it if it sat
in boiling water for two minutes but I do not want to risk this
without some moral support.
Oh yes… it is epoxied on.
It finally came off since posting this to two other groups but I
still do not have an answer on the main issure which is…
Can this gem material tolerate boiling water for a few minutes?
