Diamond semiconductors, as an emerging semiconductor material, have always been of great concern. Recently, domestic and foreign research institutions and enterprises have continuously promoted the research and development of diamond semiconductors, and have made some new progress.
Firstly, researchers recently published a paper introducing a new type of diamond semiconductor device. This device adopts sandwich structure. Two layers of Boron nitride and one layer of Graphene are grown on the diamond substrate, forming a “Graphene/Boron nitride/Graphene/diamond” structure. Researchers said that this device has high Electron mobility and high thermal stability, and is expected to be used in high-power electronic devices, high-frequency communication, microwave radar and other fields.
Secondly, it has been reported recently that Element Six, a start-up company in the diamond semiconductor field, is planning to open a new production line in 2023 to meet the growth of market demand. It is reported that Element Six has established multiple factories in Europe, Asia, and North America, and has conducted years of research and development in the field of diamond semiconductors.
In addition, diamond semiconductors have shown broad application prospects in other fields. For example, in the field of power electronics, diamond semiconductors have the characteristics of low loss, high temperature stability, and high voltage tolerance, which are expected to be applied in high-power electronic devices; In the field of life sciences, diamond semiconductors can serve as biosensors for detecting molecules such as DNA and proteins.
Overall, the continuous innovation and development of diamond semiconductors in new materials, devices, and technologies have brought broader application prospects to various industries. With the continuous advancement of technology and the continuous growth of market demand, the diamond semiconductor field will still be full of opportunities in the future.
