Part II reviews the state of the art of thin film diamond a very promising new semiconductor that may one day rival silicon as the material of choice for electronics. Diamond has the following important characteristics; it is resistant to radiation damage, chemically inert and biocompatible and it will become qthe materialq for bio-electronics, in-vivo applications, radiation detectors and high-frequency devices. Thin-Film Diamond II is the first book to summarize state of the art of CVD diamond in depth. It covers the most recent results regarding growth and structural properties, doping and defect characterization, hydrogen in and on diamond as well as surface properties in general, applications of diamond in electrochemistry, as detectors, and in surface acoustic wave devices * Accessible by both experts and non-experts in the field of semi-conductors research and technology, each chapter is written in a tutorial formatAm * Assisting engineers to manufacture devices with optimized electronic propertiesAm * Truly international, this volume contains chapters written by recognized experts representing academic and industrial institutions from Europe, Japan and the USTypical industrial requirements are for a simple solid-state detector capable of reliable operation for at least 107 ... Interdigital gold electrode structures ( thickness 200-300 nm), consisting of 15 electrode pairs on a 25 , u.m ... 50 Q impedance measurement circuit, in series with a 50 Q high speed digital oscilloscope, (500 MHz Tektronix TDS 3052). ... The performance of photoconductive devices fabricated on the irradiated samples was compared with two unexposed reference devices.
