Gruen Honored For Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Films

Multiple alert Nanodotters wrote in about the Chicago Tribune article describing Dieter Gruen’s work at Argonne National Laboratory leading to ultrananocrystalline diamond film. Gruen was honored by the Materials Research Society with the MRS Medal Award. EddieWehri writes, ” Preliminary tests show that ultrananodiamonds are 1,000 more wear-resistant than silicon, and 1 million times denser than conventional crystals. This makes them a practical base material for micromachines and other devices that had only been theoretically possible before. Maybe this will mark the real beginning of Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age.”
