Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your families enjoyed the festive season.

As we move into 2018, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2017. Over the last 12 months, Element Six has made some ground-breaking developments that demonstrate the transformational impact diamond can bring to industry.

Siemens launched its Zimpro® electro-oxidation technology using Element Six diamond at its core to treat spent caustics, for RF and other thermal management applications we launched the first-ever thermally and electrically conductive diamond Diafilm™ ETC700, and in quantum we saw a number of new entrants into the commercial space leveraging NV centres in diamond for a wide potential array of applications covering brain science to materials analysis.

Later this month we will be at Photonics West, where we look forward to connecting with colleagues and friends in the the optical industry.

No doubt 2018 will bring many surprises for all of us, but I look forward to engaging with you in the year ahead and see where the next diamond adventure might lie.

Best Wishes,

Daniel Twitchen
Head of CVD Business Development
