This New Material Is Stronger Than Graphene And Diamond

There's something stronger than graphene, and diamond. This new carbon supermaterial is like the adamantium of stuff.
Created by the researchers from Rice University in Houston, they've calculated the properties of a new form of carbon that promises a stronger and stiffer material. It's called Carbyne, and it's a chain of carbon atoms linked by alternate triple and single bonds.
The models predict that Carbyne is a little stronger than both graphene and diamond, and it's twice as stiff as the stiffest known materials.
Astronomers have once thought they detected it in interstellar space a few years ago, in chains up to 44 atoms long. It's been thought of as too reactive to reliably create and study. Of course, up until now.
As companies in the technology sector know how important security is for their users. That's why they update their systems with better functions so that nobody can easily access their data. In sight are the fingerprint sensors or the face recognition cameras. But there is nothing wrong with using traditional user and password methods. Read more
Whether you’re just getting started with digital marketing or you’ve been at it for a while, it’s easy to become engrossed in the day-to-day tasks without taking the time to look at the overall picture.
