Whereas carbon retains its diamond structure, polymerised nitrogen is unstable and reverts back to gas form when the pressure is released.
As the only set of schools in the region following the long-established Diamond Structure, Dame Allan's offer the benefits of single sex education combined with the social and cultural merits of a mixed sex environment to allow students to perform at their very best.
Zaha Hadid's Port House, built in September 2016, glitters dramatically against the water, with its deliberately ambiguous diamond structure set atop a previously derelict fire station.
Researchers believe that the water got trapped in the diamonds during formation, and as the diamonds traveled up closer to the surface, the temperature dropped (thus turning the water to ice) while the pressure of the strong diamond structure remained.
While Si has a characteristics of a single crystal with a regular diamond structure, SiC is a hard-to-handle material as performing crystal growth with few defects was difficult.
'Our Diamond Structure means we tailor teaching according to gender as well as the individual needs of our students and the fantastic results and huge array of varied and interesting degree courses our students are embarking on is testament to this.'

Diamond structure results from a metastable s bond between carbon atoms and is considered a material with extreme physical properties; such bonds give it an extreme hardness and the highest atomic density of all solids [10].
Lattice fringes inside the nanocrystals are clearly identified in the inset and their spacing distance is measured to be -0.33 nm corresponding to the 111 planes of the Ge diamond structure. It is also noticed that the nanocrystals tended to be spherical in shape although a preferred inplane crystal growth occasionally occurred.
Atomic impurities in natural diamond structure give rise to the colour seen in rare pink, blue and yellow diamond.
