Why Diamond?

It is the material of innovation in electronics, photonics, optics, surface science, and so much more.

For more than sixty years, diamond has been the material of the future. Methods for producing diamond pure enough, fast enough, and at a temperature and pressure low enough to be truly commercial were unknown. That is, until now. Our combinatorial synthesis of diamond opens up new vistas for technology development across a wide range of applications.

Microcomputer chips will soon run faster and cooler. Semiconductor power switches will handle more current than ever. Optical fiber couplers will be super efficient. Bearings will roll smoother and longer. Mobile phone and other displays will be harder and scratch proof and so will eyeglasses and windshields. Diamond may be the ultimate, stick-free cookware coating. In short, our diamond synthesis is the new competitive advantage in high technology.
