According to some of the papers i've read, parafin might be an alternative
to Teflon. The interaction of Hydrogen with Teflon is lower than with
Parafin, but it might be acceptable (Curiously, if it were a Rb maser,
you'd use a parafin coating instead of a Teflon coating).

I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
