4363New Synthetic Diamond as Possible Super Conductor
- Sep 1, 2004Where does one find new properties? Within new and never before known
We have discovered a new process to create synthetic diamond powder.
This powder is synthetic diamond doped with various metals not
available with other synthetic diamond processes. This powder is a
homogenous mix of materials and during SEM w/EDS the carbon & metal
combinations are clearly shown by the spectrum.
Now some have suggested that metal particles have triggered
nucleation of carbon around the metal seed. This could be, except
that under 1600X optical - no metal particles can be seen within the
clear carbon, suggesting either extremely small metal particles - or
atomic bonding within the tetrahedral diamond crystal lattice.
Clear, colorless crystals have been separated with a magnet. This
could be from extremely high hydrogenation or from iron within the
We claim this material is new for several reasons. Primarily due to
the first several reports. Not one of three labs had ever seen this
material before, and there is nothing within the scientific
literature for a powder having the same Raman Signature as Diamond
Like Carbon (DLC). All known DLC is as a film over a substrate, not
as nucleated materials, and not in combination with other elements.
Once funding is secured, we can create single crystals using this
unique powder and a High Temperature High Pressure press, or create
thick films of each new type of doped DLC product. Testing for
semiconductor and superconductor properties will then begin.
Charles Evans in California said the material is a hydrogenated
tetrahedral amorphous carbon and the material is a powder, not a
film. Another lab has provided SEM w/EDS spectrum, TEM w/EELS, Xray
defraction and other assorted testing. Now we need to discover best
applications for these new materials.
If nothing else, we intend to make Synthetic Diamonds for the Jewelry
industry, and possibly sell them on the Home Shopping Network for
faster investment returns.
