The Electronic and Optical Properties of Diamond; Do they Favour Device Applications?

  • Alan T. Collins (a1)

Abstract

The electronic and optical properties of diamond are reviewed, with particular emphasis on current research into the production of semiconducting devices. Although many of the properties of diamond seem, at first sight, to be ideally suited to the development of high power microwave and optoelectronic devices, there are also a number of obstacles to be overcome before diamond may be successfully exploited for device applications.
