    The internet likes to give a variety of answers, some of which contradict others, so I'll leave it to the wonderful people of TSR to answer (if people do) mainly because I'm struggling!

    In terms of microstructure etc, why are materials good insulators, and what properties lead them to be useful in their use as (my English seems to be failing me...) windows?

    If you use any sources, if you could include them - that would be awesome! But if you can't find/it's from your head/you just can't be bothered, don't worry about including.

    Thanks! (Hopefully...)
