A Laser Focus on Diamond’s Dual Nature

By | Advanced materials, Just Added, Technology and interconnectivity, The Data Revolution | No Comments
An iconic material, diamond combines huge aesthetic value with enormous practical worth – and both facets of its character are benefitting from pioneering laser science at the University of Oxford. Led by Professor Martin Booth, the Dynamic Optics and Photonics Group has achieved a breakthrough that’s now being harnessed to help tackle gemstone counterfeiting and could play a pivotal role in next-generation supercomputing. From writing tamper-proof serial numbers inside diamonds to creating defects in diamond that can then store data in quantum computers, this breakthrough has opened up remarkable possibilities in laser fabrication and its application to this most remarkable...
