The properties of diamond are extreme in many aspects: thermal, mechanical, optical, and electronic. Its mechanical robustness and optical brilliance lead to its popularity in jewellery and lend it an aura of glamour. Its industrial applications run the full range from the glamorous (quantum computing and luxury speaker domes), to the not-so-glamorous (waste water treatment and road planning), but its properties drive it to exceptional performance in all cases.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
