Proceedings Paper

A review of state of the art CVD diamond: Synthesis, processing, and scalability (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Harpreet K. Dhillon

Paper Abstract

Microwave plasma chemical vapour deposition (CVD) of diamond has enabled a multitude of optical applications due to its range of extreme properties. Transparency from the ultra-violet to the infra-red is complemented by the highest thermal conductivity of any bulk material, high laser damage threshold, low thermal expansion and chemical inertness. Element Six will review and summarize key progress made in state of the art diamond for a number of case studies, including high power laser optics, cooling in high power disk lasers, diamond Raman lasers and photonics applications.
