Besides the traditional focus on diamond, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, novel materials like carbon nanodots and carbon nitrides are expected to play a more prominent role. This meeting traditionally spans the complete spectrum from materials preparation, over fundamental physical and chemical concepts, to applied research zooming in novel device concepts making use of the remarkable properties of carbon materials. Through the DCM Young Scholar Award and DCM Early Career Research Award, the participation of the next generation of scientists is highly encouraged, creating a vibrant forum where scientists from all over the world can meet to discuss and exchange their latest cutting-edge results on diamond and carbon materials.

Focused sessions:

  • Quantum Photonics
    Chair: Wolfram PerniceWestfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany
  • Wide Band Gap Power Electronics
    Chair: Satoshi Koizumi, National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan
  • (Photo)catalysis on Carbon Surfaces
    Chair: Robert J. Hamers, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

Speaker spotlight:

Find out more about Professor Julie Macpherson being awarded one of the two Royal Society Innovation Awards for work exploring boron doped diamond as a pH and chlorine sensor for water safety. Professor Macpherson is one of the Keynote speakers at the 2017 International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Deposition and in-situ doping of diamond
  • Physical and chemical preparation methods of carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, etc
  • Diamond devices for power electronics, optoelectronics and sensors
  • Defect engineering in diamond: quantum applications, novel sensors, etc.
