Abstract
Recently, CTS Inc achieved near state of the art performance of diamond detectors in both single crystal and polycrystalline forms. In this proposal, we develop microwave plasma CVD deposition methods targeting commercially viable diamond detectors by addressing both detector performance and overall deposition rates. Diamonds radiation hardness and many other unique properties are propelling it to be utilized in increasingly important roles in DOE & apos;s discovery efforts in fundamental particle physics. Diamond also has important potential as a tissue equivalent dosimeter in radiation oncology. Diamond basic properties indicate potential of ultimately exceeding the ubiquitous Silicon and high band-gap semiconductors. Examples of vast potential electronics applications include power management, power conversion, high power density VLSI, millimeter wave telecommunication and radar systems.
