Diamonds – highly desirable lumps of carbon. But while their use to jewellers is well known, their hidden secrets are being revealed by the DIADEMS project. By modifying the structure of a diamond crystal, the project creates a new material that could be used in applications, from the creation of smart medicines to the next generation computers. The EU project is helping Europe stay at the forefront of research into atomic scale sensors.

A new project called DIAmond Devices Enabled Metrology and Sensing (DIADEMS) has been started following its kick-off meeting in Paris on 12 and 13 September, 2013. DIADEMS is a large-scale integrating project in FET Proactive, supported by the European Community's Seventh Framework ICT Programme...
