A new type of sintered diamond reinforced by diamond-MWCNTs composite fibers which were randomly orientated and even distributed in the diamond matrix was synthesized by using 3(wt)% mullti-walled carbon nanotubes(MWCNTs) as starting additive under high pressure of 5.8GPa at temperature of 1500°C for 1 min. A special polycrystalline diamond structure of direct bonding of both diamond to diamond and diamond to diamond-MWCNTs composite fiber was observed. The testing results show that it possesses not only high hardness (49-52GPa) and Young’s modulus (878GPa) but also high bending strength (1320~1540GPa) and fracture toughness (9.0~9.2MPa•M1/2) as it was theoretically predicted. The high performances of the composite were contributed to the fiber strengthening effect and the special structure which can offer more extensive diamond to diamond bonding.
