Hasselt Diamond Workshop - SBDD

SBDD XXV SBDD XXV

Hasselt Diamond Workshop 2022 - SBDD XXVI

cultuurcentrum Hasselt, Hasselt, Belgium

March 9-11, 2022

Welcome to the 26th Hasselt Diamond Workshop!

The 26th meeting of the international Hasselt Diamond Workshop continues the tradition of being the annual “early bird” venue for researchers to exchange the latest news on the progress in science and applications of CVD diamond. The meeting began in 1996 as a workshop for discussions about ‘Surface and Bulk Defects in Diamond’ (hence the acronym SBDD), and has since become known as one of the premier international conferences on diamond science and technology.

Through the yearly rotation of the Chair, each edition gets a clear signature programme based on the Chair's field of expertise. This year, the SBDD XXVI programme is focussed on quantum materials while also covering annually returning topics. This comprises the growth of high quality diamond material, including, doping, physics of colour centres and their properties, chemistry and physics of diamond surfaces, etc. Furthermore, use of these properties in quantum devices, high-power electronics, biomedical and bio-sensing applications, magnetic resonance, and many more will be discussed. Traditionally, SBDD XXVI is aiming at providing a forum where fundamental as well as application driven viewpoints can be discussed at the highest level.

We sincerely hope to see you soon in Hasselt for SBDD XXVI, enjoying CVD diamond science and Hasselt’s hospitality!

Miloš Nesládek, Chair SBDD XXVI, and the Hasselt Diamond Workshop Organisation and Programme Board.

COVID-19

The health and well-being of attendees at the "Hasselt Diamond Workshop 2022  - SBDD XXVI" is of primary concern to the organisers. The organisers continue to monitor any developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its potential impact on the meeting.

SBDD XXVI will take place as scheduled. In case of further large changes to the operating status of SBDD XXVI, all registered meeting attendees and mailing list subscribers will be directly notified via email in addition to updates on this webpage.
