“The work drew the attention of scientists at the Materials Research Laboratory at Pennsylvania State University, a leading center for research on diamond film technology.
“It is absolutely one of the biggest developments in materials synthesis in a generation,’ says [Rustum] Roy. ‘And the amazing thing is that it was done entirely as part of a production, not a research, process.”
“…an official at the Office of Naval Research, who visited QQC, tells C&EN that the office intends to support research on the process. Test results that he saw confirmed that the coatings were diamond films.”
