Whats the deal with resin? (additives)

Lately theres been alot of excitement about adding in different additives to your resins before printing, though typically you have to make 2 considerations, "how fine of a grain is my additive? and "how does my additive interact with light"

ive seen people use graphite, fine metal powders, alcohol inks, and resin dyes, you just want to be very careful about any water based dye.

you always want to make sure that the individual grain size is smaller than your layer height (.05mm = 50nm)

and you want to make sure that the additive doesnt have any weird light properties (ive done experiments with monolayer graphene in the past but because it has weird light properties to it it ended up being a very... messy failure)
