Hasselt Diamond Workshop 2017 - SBDD XXII
cultuurcentrum Hasselt, Hasselt, Belgium
March 8-10, 2017
Welcome to the 22nd Hasselt Diamond Workshop!
The 22nd edition of the international Hasselt Diamond Workshop continues with the tradition of being the yearly “early bird” venue of researchers exchanging the latest news on the progress in science and applications of CVD diamond. Since 1996, this purpose has been clearly served by the Hasselt Diamond Workshop - SBDD. The meeting became known as a vibrant forum for rapid and intense discussions on scientific and technological topics. Through the yearly rotation of the Chair, each edition gets a clear signature programme based on the Chair's field of expertise. The SBDD XXII programme will cover annually returning topics with special emphasis on the physics and technology of diamond power devices. Control over interfacial properties and defects, and the increasingly more important issue of high quality epitaxial diamond substrates, are requirements that are commonly shared with other topics, such as diamond quantum devices. Traditionally, SBDD XXII is looking forward to provide a forum where fundamental and application driven viewpoints can be discussed on the highest level.
We sincerely hope to see you soon in Hasselt for SBDD XXII, enjoying CVD diamond science and Hasselt’s hospitality!
Satoshi Yamasaki, Chair SBDD XXII, and the Hasselt Diamond Workshop Organisation and Programme Board.
