Single crystal synthetic diamond

Single crystal synthetic diamond

Element Six single crystal synthetic diamond has highly consistent and predictable properties and behaviour, and is used for cutting, optical, electronic and detector applications.

Element Six is a world leader in the manufacture of single crystal synthetic diamond products, which are utilised for a wide range of applications, including mechanical, optical and electronic.

Element Six single crystal synthetic diamond products are produced by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) or high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) synthesis. Both manufacturing processes use tightly controlled growth conditions, and the material produced is then subject to equally stringent quality control procedures. The resulting single crystal synthetic diamond is an engineered synthetic material that is highly consistent and has predictable properties and behaviour. By contrast, natural diamond material varies significantly in key properties and requires careful selection. The single crystal synthetic diamond is then processed into geometrically regular shapes, and can be used for a range of applications, including mechanical applications (as a cutting tool, wire drawing die or dresser) or optical, electronic or detector applications.
