Bottom-up approach can synthesize microscopic diamonds for bioimaging, quantum computing

Scientists are excited about diamonds—not the types that adorn jewelry, but the microscopic variety that are less than the width of a human hair. These so-called "nanodiamonds" are made up almost entirely of carbon. But by introducing other elements into the nanodiamond's crystal lattice—a method known as "doping"—researchers could produce traits useful in medical research, computation and beyond.

Nanodiamonds Doped with Silicon Could be Useful for Cell and Tissue Imaging

Researchers are very enthusiastic about diamonds—not the kinds that decorate jewelry, but the microscopic type that is below the thickness of a strand of human hair. These so-called...
