Articles on Pyrolytic Diamond

  1. Dec 18, 2005 #1
    I have searched the web top to bottem for any articles on Pyrolytic Diamond, I am starting to believe that nobody has thought of doing such a material Experiment.

    There are tons of articles on Pyrolytic Graphite but none of Pyrolytic Diamond.

    I am aware that Pyrolytic Graphite Levitates on strong Magnetic fields at room temperature, Maybe Pyrolytic Diamond will be stronger in Diamagnetism than Pyrolytic Graphite at room temperature.

    Also, I have not found any experiments using Liquid Nitrogen on Pyrolytic Graphite for determining its super cooled properties.:smile:

    Diamond is formed in some very special processes, and I believe that pyrolytic carbon does not form diamond. There are several companies that produce industrial diamond, e.g. Norton http://www.norton-diamond.com/

    GE developed a process for high quality diamonds, and apparently sold the technology. http://www.abrasivesnet.com/en/news/littlejohn.html [Broken]
