Breaking down a diamond

An inadvertent breakthrough in laser technology could enhance the development of quantum computers and other diamond-based technologies.

Researchers at Macquarie University’s MQ Photonics Research Centre discovered that UV laser light was able to remove single atoms, one by one, from diamonds.

The team made the find while working on the development of diamond lasers, when these devices revealed erosion on the surface of the diamond facets that was destroying the beam’s optical path.
