Nanoporous membranes engineered to mimic natural filtration systems can be used in smart implantable drug delivery systems, bioartificial organs, and other novel nano-enabled medical devices. The ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) porous membranes will open new opportunities in implant medicine because of the highest, unmatched by other materials degree of biocompatibility and anti-biofouling. We report our results on high porosity high-aspect-ratio UNCD membranes fabricated using e-beam lithography, reactive ion etching and laser writing.
