Exploring New Worlds with Quantum Diamonds – Ron Walsworth
Harvard researcher Ron Walsworth, one of the world’s leading experts in new quantum diamond technology, describes to a family audience how it works, and showcases three current applications: Gathering clues to the formation of the solar system; identifying tumor cells present in blood samples; and providing global positioning without the use of satellites. A fascinating peek into cutting-edge quantum science applications. Produced by the Museum of Science in collaboration with the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials, with support from the National Science Foundation (Award #1231319). Directed by Carol Lynn Alpert.

Remediation of PFAS in wastewater & landfill leachates w/boron‐doped diamond electrodes
Presented on April 18, 2019, by Cory A. Rusinek - Scientist at the Michigan State University‐Fraunhofer USA, Inc. Center for Coatings and Diamond Technologies Abstract: Boron‐doped diamond (BDD) electrodes have shown promise over the last decade for contaminant degradation with a number of studies showing its ability to degrade per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The BDD material provides a combination of rigidity, high oxygen over‐potential, and overall electrode lifetime, which makes it an attractive option for an electrochemical treatment system. This presentation covered the basic and applied research findings of using electrochemical oxidation (EO) with BDD electrodes to destroy PFAS in wastewater and other complex samples such as landfill leachates and wastewaters. Various complimentary treatment technologies for PFAS remediation were also addressed. Download slides: http://hdl.handle.net/2142/106646
