Startup shows new diamond-coated wafers for MEMS

July 16, 2007 – Advanced Diamond Technologies, Inc. (ADT), a startup targeting development and applications for diamond films, is revealing new product lines of diamond-coated wafers at SEMICON West.

The firm — also a participant in SEMI’s Technology Innovation Showcase — says its diamond-on-insulator wafers, made from vapor deposition of phase-pure ultrananocrystalline diamond on silicon wafers, to be used as platforms to test device concepts and develop processes for wafer-scale diamond applications, e.g. for MEMS and electronic devices.

“We believe that a reliable supply of our commercial grade diamond coated wafers will stimulate the development of diamond MEMS and electronic devices,” said ADT president Neil Kane, in a statement. “Today’s product launch brings diamond MEMS devices one step closer to volume production
