Diamond-copper composite spells success for Cambridge startup

Present a cheap diamond substitute to a woman, and you’re liable to get slapped. Present it to the biggest names in the microchip industry, however, and customers will line up at your door. That is the envious reality for Advanced Diamond Solutions Inc., a three-person startup launched out of MIT last year. Selling a diamond-copper composite material to act as a heat sink for microchips, the company already boasts top-flight customers: Apple Computer, Northrop Grumman and Honeywell, to name a few.
