Diamonds are forever

04 July 2016

Academics from Aberystwyth University’s Physics Department will today travel to London to present innovative research on synthetic diamonds and how they can be used in a variety of ways to support our daily activities.

University scientists from across the UK have been researching the extreme properties of man-made diamond in exciting new technologies and developing diamond based solutions for engineering, electronics, sensing and biomedical industries.

They will present their research at the Royal Society’s annual Summer Science Exhibition which opens to the public officially tomorrow (5 July 2016). 

Professor Andrew Evans is leading the delegation from Aberystwyth: “This research is made possible due to the special arrangement of carbon atoms in diamond which gives rise to its amazing properties” - please see the University page for full story.
