Dr Adrian Jones (UCL Earth Sciences)

Surprisingly different methods of diamond synthesis in the laboratory are still unable to approach the complexity of growth revealed in natural diamond. Diamond research is intimately coupled to technological advances and recent examples will be illustrated which range from formation of earths atmosphere and evidence of cosmic catastrophes to exotic unknown extraterrestrial micro-minerals.

This lecture coincides with the “Dust to diamonds” exhibition taking place in UCL’s North Cloisters until 12 November 2010
