Diamond has long held a special place in the hearts and minds both of scientists and the public at large. For some, the word diamond conjures up images of brilliant gem stones, wealth and special occasions. To the scientist, diamond is impressive because of its wide range of extreme properties. As Table 1 shows, by most measures diamond is 'the biggest and best'; it is the hardest known material, has the lowest coefficient of thermal expansion, is chemically inert and wear resistant, offers low friction, has high thermal conductivity, is electrically insulating and optically transparent from the ultra-violet UV to the far infrared IR. Obviously, given its many unique properties it is possible to envisage many other potential applications for diamond as an engineering material, but progress in implementing many such ideas has been hampered by the comparative scarcity of natural diamond. Hence the long running quest for routes to synthesise diamond in the laboratory.

Providing customers with a personal service and helping you to avoid the time and hassle of standard airport parking. Diamond Parking takes away the hassle of airport parking.

Very friendly and polite staff too. We have used Diamond Parking several times and cannot fault the service.
