Tucked away in a Romeoville industrial side street, Advanced Diamond Technologies is proof the ivory tower and the real world can mesh, federal officials said Wednesday.
U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman, in Illinois for a meeting with national laboratory directors, toured the company with U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert, a member of the House Science Committee.
"It represents the promise of moving technology from the lab to a commercial setting," Bodman said.
Using methods developed at Argonne, located near Darien, ADT technicians create a product called the ultrananocrystalline diamond, the "nano" referring to a branch of science using minuscule materials.
