  • In their Perspective, [ Kaner et al. ][1] describe recent efforts to make a material that matches or exceeds the hardness of diamond. Such a material must contain highly directional, short, and strong bonds. Hardness may also be increased by introducing a nanometer-scale structure that hinders the migration of dislocations. Despite all the scientific efforts to find a material that surpasses it, diamond remains the hardest known material. And hardness is not enough: To replace diamond in… CONTINUE READING
