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