The following article appears in the UAB News article titled “A diamond as the steppingstone to new materials, using plasma physics technology” written by Jeff Hansen. An adaption of this article appears in Materials Today as “Plasma Process Offers Fine Control Over Diamond Properties.”
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.
They are supported by a five-year, $20 million National Science Foundation award to create new materials and improve technologies using the fourth state of matter — plasma. (Read more)
Working under pressure: Diamond micro-anvils made by UAB will produce immense pressures to make new materials (see UAB News for full story) or you can check it out on the front page of the NSF website.
