Symposium EL08-Diamond Functional Devices—From Material to Applications

Diamond represents a unique carbon material owing to its superb material properties. It is often considered as a material with great potential in many areas, with power and RF electronics, heat spreaders, sensors, MEMs, room temperature quantum applications, tissue engineering and catalysis in extreme environments among the most promising. Importantly, these properties can be controlled by judicious selection of the conditions under which the materials are formed. Single crystal diamond, thin diamond, nanodiamond films, and nanoscale diamond powders are attractive for a wide range of applications including high frequency, high power electronic devices, quantum computing, nanoelectronics, platforms for chemical and biological sensing, bio labeling/drug delivery, bioelectronics, electrochemistry, and protective and biocompatible coatings, etc. Fluorescent nanodiamond particles are now being extensively studied within the biotechnology and biomedical communities for use as biocompatible fluorescent markers for biological molecules or specific cells and for targeted drug delivery. In this respect, contributions dealing with the conjugation of biomolecules/drugs of nanodiamond particles are solicited this year. The symposium will bring together scientists and engineers working at the forefront of microscale and nanoscale diamond material research. Papers are solicited in all areas of high-performance sp3 carbon material research and applications, taking into account the unique combination of their superlative properties including radiation hardness, thermal conductivity, mechanical, electrical, optical, and biological properties.

Topics will include:

  • Synthesis of diamond with intentional incorporation of defects and dopants
  • Fabrication of single crystal diamond membranes with low surface roughness for photonic chip and quantum systems
  • Diamond-based hetero-structures in thermionic, photo-induced, and field-emission devices
  • Magnetometry and quantitative bio-sensing with color centers in diamond surfaces and particles
  • Diamond detectors, field-effect transistors and high-current diodes for semiconductor applications
  • Superconductivity in diamond and graphite-diamond hybrids
  • Elastic strain band gap engineering in semiconductor diamond
  • Biocompatible surface functionalization architectures for diamond in bio-imaging, drug delivery, and quantum sensing
  • Nanoscopic diamond powders and films for photocatalytic and electrocatalytic applications
  • Boron-doped diamond electrochemical sensors for biomedical and environmental applications
  • Fiber-integrated diamond photonic sensors and devices, and luminescent diamond composites
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
