In this lecture, we will look more closely at synthetic diamond adapted for electronics applications, discuss its advantages and limitations. We will describe the Time-of-Flight method as an effective characterization technique for analysis of charge transport in single crystalline diamond, especially at low temperatures.

Diamond possesses extreme properties that makes the material very attractive for use in various field. For the most part, the material is known for its optical and mechanical properties. However, diamond has excellent semiconductor properties suitable for electronics applications. A combination of wide bandgap, high breakdown field strength, high charge carrier mobility together with its superb thermal conductivity makes it attractive in many applications e.g. power electronics and high frequency applications.
In this lecture, we will look more closely at synthetic diamond adapted for electronics applications, discuss its advantages and limitations. We will describe the Time-of-Flight method as an effective characterization technique for analysis of charge transport in single crystalline diamond, especially at low temperatures.

The lecture is an obligatory teaching test for those applying for admittance as docent and it should be possible for students and others with basic academic education in the relevant field to follow it.

The lecture will last for 45 minutes and afterwards the audience may ask questions.

The lecture will be given in English.
