Editorial Reviews

Thirty-four contributions discuss diamond (both mined and synthetic) as an engineering material, emphasizing diamond's role in modern technology and its various applications. Topics include the electrical, thermal, mechanical and optical properties; methods for characterization; hot filament, microwave, radio frequency plasma, arc jet plasma, combustion-based, and laser-based CVD growth; cost models that involve operating and marketing expenses; current applications, such as abrasives and wear resistant coatings; and future applications. An indispensable guide for scientists and engineers in the industry as well as materials, chemical, mechanical, electrical and electronics, optical, and semiconductor engineers, physicists, materials and biomedical scientists, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.

    Excellent and comprehensive

    As a materials engineer, I have an extensive personal library with a number of books on diamond. When I need information on diamond, this is the book that I find myself reaching for.
