Diamond chips sparkle after N-doping breakthrough

Abstract:
Two recent developments have bought diamond semiconductor devices closer to reality. Diamond has an extremely high thermal conductivity, can withstand high electric fields, and can be made into a semiconductor -- ideal for power devices, one would think. Unfortunately, although it can be p-doped with boron, n-doping is proving to be a problem. By bonding oxygen molecules to the diamond surface, a thin insulating layer can be formed. “Nano FETs have been made in Japan using this,” says Nesladek.
