Abstract
CRYSTALLINE DIAMOND HAS OUTSTANDING POTENTIAL FOR USE AS A HIGH TEMPERATURE RADIATION TOLERANT ELECTRONIC MATERIAL. RECENTLY A JAPANESE GROUP WAS ABLE TO GROW LARGE AREA N-TYPE AS WELL AS P-TYPE DIAMOND CRYSTALS BY DOPING DURING VAPOR PHASE GROWTH. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO GROW N-TYPE DIAMOND ON TOP OF P-TYPE DIAMOND TO FORM A PN JUNCTION, AND TO ASSESS THE QUALITY OF THE DIODES THUS FORMED. IF GOOD JUNCTIONS CAN BE DEMONSTRATED IN PHASE I THEN BIPOLAR TRANSISTOR FORMATION AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATION WILL BE MADE IN PHASE II.
