Table of Contents

Textured and Heteroepitaxial CVD Diamond Films; Structural Imperfections in CVD Diamond Films; Doping Diamond by Ion-Implantation; Boron Doping of Diamond Films from the Gas Phase; n-Type Diamond Growth; Transport and Defect Properties of Intrinsic and Boron-Doped Diamond; Optical Properties of CVD Diamond; Luminescence from Optical Defects and Impurities in CVD Diamond

Description

This volume reviews the state of the art of thin film diamond, a very promising new semiconductor that may one day rival silicon as the material of choice for electronics. Diamond has the following important characteristics; it is resistant to radiation damage, chemically inert and biocompatible and it will become "the material" for bio-electronics, in-vivo applications, radiation detectors and high-frequency devices.

Thin-Film Diamond is the first book to summarize state of the art of CVD diamond in depth. It covers the most recent results regarding growth and structural properties, doping and defect characterization, hydrogen in and on diamond as well as surface properties in general, applications of diamond in electrochemistry, as detectors, and in surface acoustic wave devices.
