V. N. Bakul Institute for Superhard Materials of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine 2, Avtozavodska Str., Kyiv, 04074, Ukraine http://www.ism.kiev.ua V. N. Bakul Institute for Superhard Materials of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine is a large European science and technology center. The Institute is engaged in the development of processes for production and application of synthetic diamond, cubic boron nitride and other superhard materials, high-density high-tech ceramics, and cemented carbides. We deal also with manufacturing structural products and tools of the above materials.
