Applications      

Due to the extraordinary properties of diamond such as extreme hardness, chemical inertness, optical transparency, high thermal conductivity in combination with electrical insulation more and more fields of applications recognize the benefits provided by this material. Particularly in applications involving extremely high power densities, high mechanical loads or severe abrasive conditions, CVD diamond is often the only material meeting the demanding requirements.
 

CVD diamond have found applications in numerous fields including:

  • Optical applications (e.g. infrared windows, lenses, ATR units, X-ray windows)
  • Thermal applications (heatspreaders, laser submounts, X-ray targets)
  • Mechanical applications (cutting tools, scalpells, knives, length gauge tips, wear resistant components e.g. for textile machines, insert for dresser tools)
  • Electro-chemical applications (electrodes, electro-chemical detectors, bio-chemical sensors)
  • Radiation sensors (ionizing radiation detectors/dosimeters, fluorescence beam monitors)
