Diamond Science & Technology Centre for Doctoral Training

Diamond is a material of such diverse application, who knows what it is capable of achieving?
Who knows? You know.

The Diamond Science & Technology Centre for Doctoral Training (DST CDT) is a gateway to the best in the UK's diamond research. You could deepen your understanding of diamond's properties, and apply your knowledge of physics, engineering, chemistry, life sciences or materials. You could uncover new ways to utilise this material's unique structure. You could be at the international forefront of efforts to transform society through aerospace, or telecommunications, or electronics, or manufacturing….

Diamond Science and Technology PhD Opportunities

Warwick Laser Machining

Our laser machining facility consists of two Oxford Lasers systems: the E-Series (34 ns, 355 nm Nd:YAG) and the A-Series (15 ns, 532 nm Nd:YAG), both fitted with high-resolution CNC stages. These systems are capable of drilling, cutting and milling a wide variety of materials with high precision. Macro/micrometer scale features can be machined in metals, plastics, composites, wafers, diamond.
