Powerful X-rays reveal information about the chemistry of silica coatings that will help researchers optimize silica shells and try other materials as coatings, expanding nanodiamonds' applications in quantum computing and biolabeling.

A team of researchers led by chemists at San Jose State University has solved the puzzle of how silica-coated nanodiamonds are formed and acquire properties that make them useful in an increasing number of scientific applications.

In an article published in the Sept. 15 edition of ACS Nanoscience Au, the researchers described the results of their investigation into the chemistry of silica coat...
