ARGONNE, Ill. (September 9, 2005) "“ The newest promising material for advanced technology applications is diamond nanotubes, and research at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is giving new insight into the nature of nanodiamond. Argonne researcher Amanda Barnard, theorist in the Center for Nanoscale Materials, is working with colleagues at two Italian universities who produced innovative diamond-coated nanotubes. The diamond-coated tubes resemble a stick of...

ARGONNE, Ill. (August 30, 2005) "“ Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory have combined the world's hardest known material "“ diamond "“ with the world's strongest structural form "“ carbon nanotubes. This new process for "growing" diamond and carbon nanotubes together opens the way for its use in a number of energy-related applications. The technique is the first successful synthesis of a diamond-nanotube nanocomposite, which means...
