Did you know that Slovakia is also producing diamonds? In terms of physical properties, a diamond is unique material with great perspective of use not only for jewelers, but also for scientists. In scientific confectionery, you will learn what the diamond consists of, how it originates in nature and how it can be produced artificially. We will explain how and why it is made by scientists at the Slovak University of Technology. Furthermore, we will introduce some others from carbon nanomaterials, we will tell you more about vacuum and we will discuss nanotechnologies.

The event Bratislava scientific patisserie will take place on 23 June 2015 at 9.00 pm, in the SCSTI building. Lecture on the subject will be given by Ing. Marián Marton, PhD.

Currently, as a researcher, he is devoted to study of synthesis, analysis and possibilities of implementation of a wide range of carbon-based nanomaterials.

Bratislava scientific patisserie is a joint project of the National Centre for the Popularization of Science and Technology in Society within SCSTI and a civic association Young Scientists of Slovakia.
