Goodfellow has announced the addition of diamond on silicon electronics-grade wafers to its line of metals and materials for research and product design. The wafers, manufactured by Advanced Diamond Technologies (ADT) and coated with ADT's Ultrananocrystalline Diamond™ (UNCD™), are available from Goodfellow in small quantities. UNCD is a family of diamond materials that have the hardness and other properties of natural diamond, but with a mirror-smooth surface that allows for outstanding control of surface properties. The mechanical and electrical properties of UNCD films can be tailored to suit specific applications.
