Diamond technology to revolutionize mobile communications

A new technology based on Ultrananocrystalline DiamondTM (UNCDTM), a novel material developed at Argonne that will enable diamond resonators and oscillators to be directly integrated with microelectronics chips for next-generation telecommunication devices. These devices will be fully integrated with silicon microchips to enable a new generation of high performance portable communication systems (maybe 20 or more times faster than current technology). Eventually the fruits of this project could result in enabling a variety of mobile technologies with much higher data communication rates. This hybrid approach seems likely to help tap the benefits of diamond materials in more situations and at lower costs.
