CVD diamond for thermal management

One of the remarkable properties of diamond is its unsurpassed thermal conductivity, which is five times higher than that of copper. As we all know, heat is conducted by electrons in metal, however, lattice vibrations are the key factor for the high thermal conductivity of diamond.
Due to the extraordinary high concentration of atomic hydrogen produced by the very high temperatures of the arc discharging, diamond films with high thermal conductivity can be easily obtained even at relatively high growth rate by DC Arc Plasma Jet. The thermal conductivity of our optical quality CVD diamond made by our company through DC Arc Plasma Jet approaches that of the natural type IIa diamond, 2000W/mK. Thermal conductivity can be tailored within the range of 800-2000 W/mK, and thus can be subdivided in to different quality grades to meet the different needs of our customers in different application fields. At present, CVD diamond made by our company is used as mounts for high-power integrated circuits, laser diodes, GaN on Diamond (GOD) and heat spreaders for satellite based electronic systems.
