Paper Abstract

The growth of high quality Chemical Vapor Deposited (CVD) Diamond is an enabling technology for a number of long wave, infrared, power handling and imaging applications. This is demonstrated using data showing scatter and absorption levels and also the material's resistance to high power, continuous wave CO2 lasers with powers in excess of 15 kW. Data are also given for relevant properties in the near infrared (for which scatter and image degradation are more sensitive to material quality) which show that high optical quality CVD diamond can now be produced which will also enable a number of applications at these shorter wavelengths.
