Bending diamond at the nanoscale

Bending diamond at the nanoscale Sydney, Australia (SPX) Feb 07, 2020
Diamond is prized by scientists and jewellers alike, largely for a range of extraordinary properties including exceptional hardness. Now a team of Australian scientists has discovered diamond can be bent and deformed, at the nanoscale at least. The discovery opens up a range of possibilities for the design and engineering of new nanoscale devices in sensing, defence and energy storage but Source:
