About this Event
This will be the lecture to kick off CVD Diamond project under leadership of the Science Chair Josh Melnick.
Will be designing and fabricating a CVD tool for the purpose of CVD single crystal diamond fabrication over the course of the year. 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.
