“Diamonds are for everything”

I was a bit skeptical at first about this article from Chemistry World, broadly about the uses of diamonds. Why do I care about diamonds? It’s actually pretty cool though; it explains in just the right amount of detail a wide variety of modern and emerging applications of diamonds, from making better solar panels, to single-photon lasers, to stable windows for missions to Venus.

I don’t want to summarize all these summaries of applications, since I think they’re already written pretty succinctly and well, so go check out the article if you want some insight into emerging technology in quite a variety of fields.

With diamonds getting easier to create in a lab, I wonder what the diamond market and culture will look like in 50 years? Many a young fiancé may be in better luck than our generation.
