English term or phrase:grow
That's because many diamonds can be grown today in low-pressure chambers where carbon from a methane-hydrogen mixture is coaxed into collecting and forming single crystals around tiny starter diamonds. The process yields large, rapidly created diamonds that may one day find a use in, among other things, semiconductor devices in high-temperature environments.
"Everybody is growing diamonds," said John C. Angus, a professor of engineering at Case Western Reserve University who was a pioneer in developing the technique of creating diamonds from gases, called chemical vapor deposition.
