Science and Technology of Nano-Polycrystalline Diamond 2019 (STNPD-2019)

Date 28 February – 2 March 2019
(subsequent to the PRIUS symposium, mostly given in Japanese, 27-28 February)
Venue Ehime University(HP
Scope Since the first report of synthesis of ultra-hard nano-polycrystalline diamond (NPD) in 2003 by the Geodynamics Research Center (GRC) of Ehime University, efforts have been made to apply this novel material to cutting-edge high-pressure researches in geoscience, physics, chemistry, materials science, etc., through a number of inter-laboratory collaborations with the GRC. We will have an international symposium on the synthesis, physical properties, and applications of NPD and relevant materials for further development of science and technology in high-pressure and related research fields, as well as for promotion of research collaborations using NPD. We invite not only the NPD users but also those who are interested in using NPD for their individual studies to this first international symposium on science and technology of NPD to be held at the GRC in Matsuyama, where it was born. This symposium is supported by the Joint Usage/Research Center program (“PRIUS”) run by the GRC and the Grant-in-aid for Scientific Research in Innovative Areas (“Interaction and Coevolution of the Core and Mantle”).
