How science invented a remarkable new harder-than-diamond nanomaterial

from Wired

How do you design industrial tools that can top the most heavy-duty diamond-tipped devices? Easy: You create a new material that's even harder than diamond. Yes, it's an often misstated "fact": Diamond is the hardest material in the world. That title has been contested for some time now, and a paper published in Nature offers yet another contender. "Ultrahard nanotwinned cubic boron nitride," describes how researchers from the University of Chicago, the University of New Mexico, Yanshan University, Jilin University and Hebei University of Technology compressed a form of boron nitride particles to an ultrahard version. more
