Diamond research at UCL attracts £84000 funding

A project for prototyping a novel diamond device for image intensifiers has been awarded an EPSRC funded £84000 Enterprise Award by UCL's BEAMS Knowledge Transfer and Enterprise Board and the Vice-Provost (Enterprise).

 

"Diamond is a truly remarkable material. It has unusual optical properties...In short, using diamond as a gemstone is a waste of its true potential!"  These are the words of Professor Richard Jackman from the London Centre for Nanotechnology's Diamond Electronics Group at UCL who is delighted with the funding for his research. He is currently investigating novel diamond structures for high power diamond devices.

Professor Jackman is due to give his Inaugural Lecture titled "Diamond as a Gemstone, what a waste!" on Friday 28th October at 5pm in the Gustave Tuck LT.
