This book on nanodiamonds is the first of its kind. Nanodiamonds are indispensable
for polishing industrial materials (e.g. computer hard drives and read heads)
and advanced ceramics (e.g. silicon carbide and gem diamond).
This book is valuable for those dealing with nanodiamonds, as well as these
interested in a general education of nano-sized materials.
'The reader will re-realize how many properties diamond have of best characteristics
amongst the materials, how wide are its applications, how are the new technology
items coming out, in spite of its natural born history, with the fascinating
introduction of 'Diamond in the Sky'!'
