University of Alabama at Birmingham physicists have taken the first step in a five-year effort to create novel compounds that surpass diamonds in heat resistance and nearly rival them in hardness.
Tiny particles in the air known as aerosols play an important role in cloud formation, which in turn has an impact on our planet's climate. However to date the effect of aerosols on cloud formation remains full of uncertainties. ...
Studying acoustic waves at microwave frequencies in diamonds brings scientists one step closer to new microsensors
A collaborative of Russian researchers has mathematically modelled diamond-based microstructures for producing compact, high-sensitivity sensors.
(Phys.org) —What began as research into a method to strengthen metals has led to the discovery of a new technique that uses a pulsing laser to create synthetic nanodiamond films and patterns from graphite, with potential ...
For the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, diamond technology has been a gem of an idea.
A new method for creating thin films of diamonds, which is described in the journal Applied Physics Letters, produced by AIP Publishing, may allow manufacturers to enhance future electronics.
(PhysOrg.com) -- While diamonds may be a girls best friend, theyre also well-loved by scientists working to enhance the performance of electronic devices.
There is a new way to design computer chips and electronic circuitry for extreme environments: make them out of diamond.
(PhysOrg.com) -- At first, nanoshocks may seem like something to describe the millions of aftershocks of a large earthquake.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Diamond-like carbon films created at Sandia National Laboratories are helping probe the far boundaries of the solar system as part of a NASA mission to study how the sun's solar wind interacts with the interstellar ...
