The Mysteries of Diamonds: Bizarre History, Amazing Properties, Unique
Applications

Harris Kagan (Ohio State University)

Abstract:
Diamonds have been a prized material throughout history. They are scarce
and beautiful, wars have been fought over them, and they remain today a
symbol of wealth and power. Diamonds also have exceptional physical
properties which can lead to unique applications in science. There are
now techniques to artificially synthesize diamonds of extraordinarily
high quality. In this talk, Professor Kagan will discuss the history of
diamonds, their bizarre properties, and their manufacture and use for
21st century science.

Panofsky Auditorium

Stay after the talk and talk to physicists!

Event is open to the public. Please bring picture ID.


Live long and prosper,
Kennita
