- The team is first to have coaxed molecules containing carbon atoms to form the strong tetrahedron shape, then link each tetrahedron end to end to form a long, thin nanothread
- The scientists confirmed the structure of their diamond nanothreads with a number of techniques at Penn State, Oak Ridge, Arizona State University and the Carnegie Institution for Science
- The nanothread also may be the first member of a new class of diamond-like nanomaterials based on a strong tetrahedral core.
