  • Patent number: 9745197
    Abstract: A mild, acid- and alkali-free purification method of detonation nanodiamond material from water-insoluble metal-containing impurities and product obtained thereof. The products thus obtained include nanodiamond and diamond-containing detonation blend. The method is implemented by an impact treatment of the detonation nanodiamond material with aqueous or water organic solutions of chelating agents in concentrations 0.5-20 wt. % at elevated temperature, wherein the weight-percent ratio of the detonation nanodiamond material to an undiluted chelating agent is substantially 1 to 0.2. Impact treatment of the detonation nanodiamond material in chelating agent solution may include boiling, ultrasonication, cavitational disintegration, and harsh treatment in sealed chamber at temperatures of up to about 300° C. and high pressure.

  • Publication number: 20120244032
    Abstract: In order to produce a coating on a substrate, the substrate is placed adjacent to a target. Material is cold ablated off the target by focusing a number of consecutive laser pulses on the target, thus producing a number of consecutive plasma fronts that move at least partly to the direction of said substrate. The time difference between said consecutive laser pulses is so short that constituents resulting from a number of consecutive plasma fronts form a nucleus on a surface of the substrate where a mean energy of said constituents allows the spontaneous formation of a crystalline structure.
