Researchers create single diamond/boron nitride crystalline layers for more efficient high-power machining

By Stephanie Liverani / May 13, 2016

ACerS member Jay Narayan and his research team at North Carolina State University have developed a new technique to deposit diamond on the surface of cubic boron nitride, integrating the two materials into a single crystalline structure that can be used in high-power devices.

Video: 3D structures from liquid metal

By Jim Destefani / July 11, 2013

We know, we know…we’re the American CERAMIC Society. But this bit of video from North Carolina State University (Raleigh), where researchers at the university have used 3D printing to produce free-standing structures made of liquid metal at room temperature, was just too cool to pass up. “It’s difficult to create structures out of liquids, because…
