Abstract
"Diamond represents a multimillion market due to its unique combination of superior thermal, electronic, optical, dielectric, chemical, and mechanical properties. However its applications are far from fully developed. One of the hurdles is the lack of asuitable technique to make high quality diamond with low cost comparable to that of other materials in various application areas. MicroCoating Technologies (MCT) proposes to synthesize thin film diamond at lower cost utilizing its proprietary Nanomisertechnology and Combustion Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) process, and expertise in thin film deposition targeting applications in thermal management and electronics. Professor Zlatko Sitar at North Carolina State University, an expert in heteroepitaxialgrowth of diamond thin films, will collaborate with MCT on this Phase I effort. This novel concept, if successful, will result in a low cost, high quality platform for enormous electronic devices, enabling its widespread commercial and military uses.Envisioned applications include, but not limited to, field emission displays, electronic packaging, thermal management, super capacitors, IR windows, piezoresistive sensors, gas sensors, and surface acoustic wave devices."
