Torr Scientific is proud to have been appointed the European agent for optical and thermal CVD diamond processed at The Plasma Laboratory, Hebei Institute of Laser in China. Natural diamond has always been of extreme scientific interest due to its unmatched properties including hardness, thermal conductivity, broadband transparency, chemical inertness and high temperature stability. However, the cost of natural diamond substrates is prohibitive in most cases. The big news in the last two decades is that CVD processes have been developed to the point where economical artificial diamond substrates are now readily available. Torr Scientific is offering CVD diamond substrates in various shapes for use in applications such as thermal mounts and laser windows as well as sealed into vacuum viewport assemblies for high vacuum applications. The CVD diamond performance is very close to that of natural diamond, so our customers can now take advantage of thermal conductivity that is five times that of copper and high transparency for optical wavelengths that range from 225 nanometers to beyond 100 microns!
