About this Event

This will be the lecture to kick off CVD Diamond project under leadership of the Science Chair Josh Melnick.
I will be designing and fabricating a CVD tool for the purpose of CVD single crystal diamond fabrication over the course of the next 2 years. Will be using either hot filament or Microwave plasma method.

To make diamond by chemical vapor deposition, hydrogen gas and methane are flowed through a chamber containing a substrate. Heat or a microwave-generated plasma is used to split hydrogen gas into atomic hydrogen, which then reacts with methane to give methyl radical and hydrogen gas. The carbon-containing radical species eventually deposit as diamond onto the substrate.
