Gold and Diamonds

Abstract:
Gold and diamonds, accouterments at many weddings, have another curious affinity. They have almost the same acoustic impedance, a fact which two physicists are hoping to exploit in order to get nanoparticles, embedded in a crystalline network, to ring with a pure tone, which in turn should help in the development of various nanotechnology devices.
