CVD Synthetic Diamond Over 5 Carats Identified by …

CVD Diamond’s are diamonds that are synthetically produced through machines such as the ones that we provide here at Blue Wave Semiconductor. CVD diamonds have a wide variety of uses in many technical applications and are also used in many niche markets. Here at Blue Wave we can provide the diamonds that are needed for your project and can even provide the machine to create these diamonds.

Dr. Thomas Schuelke is the Executive Director of Fraunhofer USA’s Center for Coatings and Diamond Technologies located on Michigan State University campus. In 2003 his Fraunhofer group joined forces with MSU’s microwave plasma group and has since collaborated on numerous diamond related R&D projects. Dr. Schuelke holds an Adjunct Professor appointment with the ECE department. Dr. Schuelke received M.S. (1992) and Ph.D. (1996) degrees in physics from the Technical University Dresden, Germany. Prior to joining Fraunhofer USA Inc., Dr. Schuelke spent two years with Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing in Singapore as an R&D engineer working on plasma etching processes. Today his team performs applied R&D projects for industry and government with a focus on diamond materials and thin film coatings.

1) Can the proposed CVD growth process be used to create high quality diamondfilms?

Significance. Diamond is a material that has uniquely attractivephysical, electrical, thermal, and optical properties. It is also a metastablecrystal at room temperature that forms naturally only at extremely highpressures and temperatures. Small industrial diamonds have been grownartificially for many years and, more recently, various forms of chemical vapordeposition (CVD) techniques have become an established means used to growdiamond thin films that have a wide variety of mechanical and optical uses. Allof these synthesis techniques practically produce diamond that must be thin inat least one dimension. In the case of industrial diamond, processing parameterslimit practical sizes for diamond growth to a scale of a few µm; CVD diamond films can be grown over large areas but the thickness growth rateis too slow to be practical for significantly 3-D structures. CVD growthprocesses also require special gas/plasmas conditions above the growingsubstrate that prevent the use of these processes in the small volumes thatwould be necessary to perform diamond joining.

The innovation of this work is the use of photofragmented fullerene diamonddeposition and crystal growth to bond separate pieces of diamond into amonolithic diamond structure. This process can be used either to join separatepieces of diamond into a single structure, or to create an arbitrarily sized andshaped single, bulk net shape diamond part that has been formed frominexpensive, bonded diamond grit. The basis for this approach is separate workthat shows that: 1) Fullerene, C60, photofragmentation occurs inresponse to excitation by a high intensity light source, and this fragmentationoccurs in preference to ionization or other de-excitation processes as a resultof the unusual nature of the resonant bonding in the fullerene molecule, 2)Diamond growth has already been demonstrated using fullerene fragmentation in anargon microwave plasma. Photofragmentation is a prerequisite for internaldiamond deposition inside a small volume because the normal CVD process usingplasmas is not possible on such a small scale. The proposed technique iseffectively a means of sintering diamond that uses C60 vapor passingthrough pores in the diamond as the carbon source for deposition bonding,resulting in inherently porous diamond. Aside from creating large diamondstructures, porous diamond has a variety of optical, heat transfer, and otherapplications.

CVD diamonds can be used in many aspects of modern technology. Devices using modern day technology use a high level apparatus incorporating CVD diamonds, that provide several benefits. Items such as microprocessors which are in every modern piece of technology have melting points that are much too high for most modern elements to handle, except for CVD diamonds.

Blue Wave Semiconductors offers a variety of thin film deposition systems including, pulsed laser deposition (PLD) systems, electron beam evaporators, thermal evaporators, reactive sputtering tool, hot filament chemical vapor deposition (HFCVD) systems, and thermal chemical vapor deposition (TCVD) systems. These systems are excellent for synthesis of novel thin film materials and coatings, including nitrides, functional oxides/multilayers, diamond, graphene, CNTs, and 2D materials. Blue Wave Semi also provides deposition system accessories such as substrate heaters and in-situ monitoring tools. In addition, we provide prototype runs of thin films and coatings of metals, oxide coatings, transparent conductors, amorphous and nano-crystalline Si and SiC, crystalline AlN-GaN, and poly and nano diamond and HFCVD Diamond coatings and device fabrications.

Effects of Oxygen on CVD Diamond Synthesis - …

The MSU/Fraunhofer Center for Coatings and Diamond Technologies has a long-term effort in plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition (CVD) synthesis of single-crystalline diamond (SCD) substrates. Such substrates are of enabling importance for emerging applications such as diamond-based electronic devices, active and passive optical diamond crystals, and X-ray optical diamond components. These applications require challenging substrate dimensions, crystallographic perfection and ppb-level impurity control. For example, building commercially viable single-crystalline diamond electronic devices will require the availability of 300 µm thick wafers with diameters of 50 mm, intrinsic impurity levels of less than 5 parts per billion, dislocation densities and other structural defects of less the 100 per cm2 and controlled p- or n-type doping levels from 1016 – 1021 cm-3. Single-crystalline substrates of that size do not yet exist. Available substrates have a typical surface area of less than 100 mm2 and vary in quality. On the other hand much progress has been made in synthesizing high quality SCD with microwave plasma-assisted CVD (Schreck et al., 2014). Demonstrated growth rates exceed 50 µm per hour, the simultaneous synthesis of many crystals (Asmussen et al., 2008) and the multiple reuses of high quality seed crystals for homoepitaxial synthesis (Muehle et al., 2014)) promise a more cost effective production of ever larger and SCD substrates. P- and n-type doping processes have been demonstrated (Grotjohn et al., 2014; Ramamurti et al., 2009). Continual CVD reactor development aims at further improving process performance and material quality (Lu et al., 2013).

Synthetic Diamond: Emerging CVD Science and Technology

Examples of diamond anvil CVD diamond single crystals were produced by a 915 MHz microwave plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition system for high-pressure diamond anvil research. The weights of these crystals range from 0.2 to 1.15 carats. The color grading ranges from near colorless to colorless.
