Studies of Colored Gem Diamonds:  Relevance to Diamond Electronics

Location: 14 Sir Christopher Ondatjee Avenue (E7B) T5

Dr James Butler Consultant Naval Research Laboratory (retired)

The superlative properties of Diamond are enabling a wide range of technological applications from quantum devices, Raman lasers, and optical windows, to mechanical devices such as MEMS and cutting tools.  In this talk I will review some recent work on blue and chameleon natural diamonds with a focus on physical processes involving defects. I will then discuss recent progress on doping of diamond for electronic devices.  These two diverse topics are related by physical processes involving the defects/dopants.

Dr. Butler retired from the Naval Research Laboratory in 2010 after 35 years of research. He currently is a consultant on Diamond Materials. He is the Chief Scientist and co-founder of Diamond Foundry, Vice President for Diamond Technology at Euclid Techlabs, Research Associate at the Natural History Museum of the Smithsonian Institute, Visiting Scientist in the Department of Physics at Vanderbilt University, and an Adjunct Fellow at Macquarie University. He was the Leading Scientist of the Diamond Electronics Laboratory of the Institute of Applied Physics RAS Nizhny Novgorod and St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University (2012-2017). Dr. Butler received his S.B degree from MIT (1966) in chemical physics and his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago (1972) where he continued as a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellow.
