Why is Diamond Considered a Supermaterial?
Supermaterials are called such due to their unrivaled ability to deliver extreme performance across a variety of applications. Diamond has a range of physical and chemical properties that make it one of the most versatile supermaterials on the planet. †For example, a few of these properties include the highest known thermal conductivity, widest optical transparency window, high electrical carrier mobility, chemical inertness, wide bandgap, electric insulation and even long quantum decoherence times for spin qubits. Many of these properties stem from its molecular structure, also key to its exceptional mechanical properties linked to its hardness. This combination of properties combined with new manufacturing techniques means diamond is finding new technological applications across precision machining, optics, electronics, wastewater treatment, sensors and semiconductor industries.

In critical facilities, uptime is essential. When main power becomes interrupted, these applications depend on backup systems to ensure crucial equipment remains up and running. At the heart of any backup system is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). In the event of a utility power outage, a UPS keeps electricity flowing to vital systems and equipment until auxiliary generators cycle on. MORE
