Synthetic, nearly defect-free diamond crystals can reflect more than 99% of hard x-ray photons

Researchers utilizing high-brightness x-rays at the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science's Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory have demonstrated that synthetic, nearly defect-free diamond crystals can reflect more than 99% of hard x-ray photons backward in Bragg diffraction, with a remarkably small variation in the magnitude of reflectivity across the sample.
