Researchers at the University of Erlangen in Germany hope to open "a broad vista of possible semiconductor applications for diamond" using a new doping method (Nature, July 22, 2004).
Thursday 22nd July 2004
Researchers at the University of Erlangen in Germany hope to open “a broad vista of possible semiconductor applications for diamond” using a new doping method (Nature, July 22, 2004). Rather than introduce chemical impurities, the scientists evaporate C60 molecules (“Bucky balls”) onto a hydrogen-terminated diamond surface, inducing a subsurface hole accumulation and a significant rise in two-dimensional conductivity.
