A growing application for nanodiamonds. Carbodeon uDiamond® liquid dispersions is applied to the substrate as a thin layer, for example by spin coating, and then the water or solven is evaporated. The aim is to achieve a very fine coating of nanodiamond particles on the substrate surface, ideally only a single particle in depth (4-6nm). These nanodiamonds will seed the growth of thin films including diamond thin films.
Ideal uDiamond® materials include:
uDiamond® Hydrogen D (2nd Gen) (Hydrogen functionalised, strongly zeta positive, aqueous & solvents, main material used for CVD seeding and far superior to the earlier "Andante" material commonly referred to as "Osawa Water")
uDiamond® Vox D (2nd Gen) (Carboxyl functionalised, strongly zeta negative, aqueous & solvents, for substrates requiring a zeta negative material)
uDiamond® Adagio(1st Gen) (Ethylene Glycol)
