Lab-Grown Diamonds in Micro and Power Electronics

A diamond possesses the highest chemical stability, as well as unique conductivity and thermal shock resistance. These properties create  an undoubtful demand in many electro-chemical sectors of production and technology. Semiconductors, diodes, transistors, electrolytes, sensors, and medical equipment require diamonds as their components. Although there’s a limited and unpredictable supply and high cost of mined diamonds, the lab-grown ones are the perfect solution.

Most of the diamonds applied in such fields need to be pure carbon, and lab-grown manufacturing is indispensable in these cases. While almost all of the earth-mined diamonds have nitrogen atoms in their crystal structure, most of the lab-grown diamonds are Type IIA. Some projects and enterprises stand out, since they require Type IIb diamonds that contain atoms of boron, which are almost impossible to get through mining. And yet again, laboratories and manufacturers are the key. Type IIb lab-grown diamonds are used in electrochemical oxidation systems that purify contaminated water, thus providing a better and safer future.
