ADT Eyes Electronics and Sensors for Its Nanoscale Thin-Film Diamond

Abstract:
Advanced Diamond Technologies, based in Romeoville, Illinois, makes thin films of diamond one carbon atom at a time. The result could be more powerful cellphones, superior imaging at the nanoscale and more accurate and sensitive biosensors.

ADT's UNCD films are comprised of diamond grains as small as 3-5 nanometers in diameter. The company calls this material "ultra-nanocrystalline diamond" and has trademarked the term as UNCDŽ. The diamond manufacturing process is born of research from the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory. And in fact, the two technical co-founders of ADT are either current or former researchers at Argonne.
