Abstract
In Phase I, CTS Inc developed microwave plasma CVD process and hardware to achieve state of the art performance of diamond detectorsin both single crystal and polycrystalline formsand to indicate methods of costs reduction. In Phase II, CTS Inc will apply these methods to create a viable commercial product and accompanying delivery technology to serve DOE HEP research objectives as well as commercial opportunities. Specific development objective include: price reduction by innovative scale up methodology, high flux radiation tolerance of detectors, deposition throughput, and product reproducibility and homogeneity. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Diamonds radiation hardness and many other unique properties are propelling it to important roles in DOE & apos;s discovery efforts in fundamental physics. Diamond is promising as a tissue equivalent dosimeter in rapidly growing field of radiation oncology. Diamonds superior electronic properties may soon enable improvements in ubiquitous Silicon semiconducting devices. Examples of diamond devices currently under development include grid power management, power conversion, high power density VLSI, millimeter wave telecommunication, and civilian, as well as, military radar systems.
