Ultrananocrystalline diamond-coated membranes show promise for medical implant applications

Recent studies have shown that microporous membranes can facilitate migration of epidermal cells, enabling the development of a seal that resists movement of fluid and microorganisms and therefore improving the implant life. Researchers have now devised a simple but innovative approach that combines both of these aspects simply by coating silicon nitride microporous membranes with a conformal coating of ultrathin ultrananocrystalline diamond films.
