Diamond for Electronic Devices IV

The continued evolution of diamond growth and technology has led to new opportunities in detectors, high power and high voltage electronics, superconductivity and quantum photonics. This has been strongly driven by advances in the growth technology such as high purity and now large area substrates becoming commercially available.


Several topics will be of particular interest at this meeting, although papers on all aspects of diamond technology are welcome. These include diamond for power electronics, diamond nano-electronic devices, diamond for quantum applications and diamond for bio-devices. In all cases, man-made single crystalline diamond is used either as ultra-pure layer or semiconducting by boron and phosphorus doping. The growth and deposition of high quality diamond films will therefore be a subtopic at the symposium. Quantum metrology applications (for example, magnetrometry based on NV centres) is of key interest. Doping of diamond is a key topic using both boron and phosphorus. in case of phosphorus and boron doping. New areas such as the integration of diamond GaN, Wafer bonding to materials will be given close attention.
