DST Seminar: Story of a Puzzle: Another Facet of Diamond - Gwenaelle Lefeuvre, Micronsemiconductor Ltd
2pm - 3pm, Wednesday 21st November
Materials & Analytical Sciences (MAS 2.06)
Although its optical properties are those most often cited and even revered, diamond also possesses characteristics that extend its field of application well beyond luxury jewellery.
This presentation focuses in particular on the electronic properties of diamonds, thanks to which Micron Semiconductor manufactures radiation sensors for applications as diverse as particle physics, space exploration, energy or medical diagnostics.
After an introduction on artificial diamond and its various uses, we will explore the steps involved in manufacturing a sensor and examine current and future applications in this sector.
