Transparent Aluminum

we have been waiting for it since scotty talked about it.

Ceramic Windows
The windows and transparent doors are made of aluminum oxynitride, a millimeters-thin ceramic being developed by the military as a bulletproof replacement for vehicle windows and domes.

Interestingly, they really had found a way to turn aluminum transparent for short periods of time using radiation. This sounds like a much cooler trick though. I love that scene in Star Trek 3.
