Radiation & Particle Detectors
from CVD Diamond
The diamond detection layer is grown via Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) by Element Six (formerly Drukker), whose antecedents first synthesized diamond in South Africa in 1957; our detectors are built by a specialty house that turns diamond substrates into final products.
Our supplier targets four main markets: high energy physics, nuclear monitoring, radiotherapy dosimetry, and deep UV detection. Their capabilities include material processing (thinning & polishing), die fabrication & testing, die/wire bonding, packaging & detector characterization.
Happy Customers for diamond detectors from this supplier include:
CERN ATLAS (beam conditions monitor),
CERN LHC Large Hadron Collider,
ESRF European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (xray beam diagnostics),
Fermilab CDF Collider Detector at Fermilab (flux measurement),
Harwell UK Diamond Light Source Synchrotron (large area fluorescence detector),
IBA Dosimetry (Scanditronix Wellhofer) Intensity Modulated Radiation Treatment [IMRT],
Los Alamos National Laboratory (many different applications),
Sandia National Laboratories (neutron monitoring).
The intrinsic properties that commend diamond to the detection application include: wide band gap (no thermally generated noise), low Z (tissue equivalent), low absorption, high thermal conductivity, and radiation hardness ('rad-hard').
Diamond-based detectors are capable of high sensitivity (application dependent), and good spatial & temporal resolution (10s ps). Spatial resolution is achieved by segmenting the diamond & isolating the pieces ('quad', co-linear, etc).
Lastly, diamond also offers low leakage current and low capacitance; the low capacitance enables higher voltage and, therefor, faster response times.
Diamond can be used to detect:
charged particles, including alpha, beta, high-energy ions, etc;
certain neutral particles, including neutrons with energies above 5.8MeV;
photons with energy > 5.5eV, including UV (<220 nm), all X-ray & gamma rays.
Related Products from CVD Diamond:
optical windows: broadest-band transmission from gamma rays & x-rays to microwaves & RF; (absorption in Mid-IR)
heat bridges: thermal conductivity 5x higher than copper;
probes: boron-doped diamond bio/chemical sensors/electrodes.
End-Users' Published Papers: something for (almost) every application!
