Tougher Electronic Components

Researchers at HP-CAT at the APS have used extreme temperatures and pressures to make two durable compounds called noble metal nitrides.

Both nitrides possess diamond-like hardness, and some compositions might have very low, nearly super-conductive electrical resistance—a blend that could prove valuable to industry.

The two could eventually replace titanium nitrides used by semiconductor industry as surface coatings because of their strength and durability
