Hidden in obscurity was an allotrope of carbon called Lonesdaleite. This
carbon allotrope was discovered by chance in 1967 while studying meteorites.
Named in honour of Kathleen Lonsdale, Lonsdaleite is also referred to as
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and
Konstantin Novoselov “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-
dimensional material graphene”.
In September 2014, an epiphany came to the Alfields team – could it be
possible to combine both hexagonal diamond and graphene to create a new
From this simple thought, Novamene was born.
Novamene can simply be described as the combining of hexagonal diamond
(Lonesdaleite) and graphene. Since diamond is an electrical insulator and
graphene is a conductor, Novamene has the potential to revelutionize the nano-
electronics world. In short, Novamene will replace silicon as the primary
material for computer chips.
Novamene also holds the potential to function as a quantum bit (qbit) and is
predicted to be the basis for the fabrication of a room temperature quantum
computer. Such a device would dramatically and dynamicaly change all
means of high-end computer problem solving.
After developing single-ring Novamene, it became clear that what is magical
about this new material is that it can exist as a completely new class of
allotropes having many thousands of combinations of graphene rings
surrounded by hexagonal diamond. The last time a completely new class of
hexagonal diamond had been discovered was in 1986 with the discovery of
fullerenes. In short, Novamene is not one material but many thousands of
allotropes that are expected usher in a new era in modern science.
