With news just last week that nanodiamonds could aid in the development of new methods for drug delivery and cancer therapeutics, the prospects for successful cancer treatment got a shot in the arm.

While medical applications for nanodiamonds got a boost, it left the fortunes of nanodiamonds in electronics-related applications a bit out in the cold. The wait was not long, however, with research out of Purdue University that demonstrated a pulsed laser could be used to create synthetic nanodiamond films and patterns on the surface of graphite. This development should have an impact on potential applications for nanodiamonds including biosensors, quantum computing, fuel cells and next-generation computer chips.
