Synthetic diamond electronics

Electronic products from synthetic diamonds on the way

Materials World magazine
The next generation of high-power high-frequency electronic products made from synthetic diamond may not be far off. By using novel processing techniques, Element Six (E6) Ltd, based in Ascot, UK, has announced that it is close to creating these devices. The research includes the Micromachined Diamond Device Initiative.
Ferromagnetic zinc compound

New family of zinc compounds created to benefit research

Materials World magazine
Zinc compounds have been developed to take on the properties and behaviour of materials allowing researchers to study and understand their properties. Scientists are using this tecnique to study ferromagnetism and develop new products and processes.

Making sense of minerals sorting

Materials World magazine
A near infrared spectrometer for automated mineral sorting is close to production. The imaging specrometer developed by Spectra-Map produces a fingerprint from the reflectance of specific wavelengths to separate and characterise a range of minerals.

Materials engineers and polymer scientists sought for case studies

Materials engineers and polymer scientists are invited to take part in case studies to be used in educational literature.
