Nanoscale diamond takes the strain


Diamond maybe the hardest natural material, but it is brittle and deforms little before breaking catastrophically. Now, however, researchers have shown that tiny nanoscale diamond needles can bend and deform reversibly, like bristles on a brush, before breaking [Banerjee et al.Science 360 (2018) 300].

The tiny diamond needles are created using a combination of chemical vapor deposition and plasma-induced etching. The team from City University of Hong Kong, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Institute for Basic Science, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, and Nanyang Technological University used a nanoindenter to repeatedly push the needles until ……
