Hasselt Diamond Workshop - SBDD

SBDD XXVII SBDD XXVII

Hasselt Diamond Workshop 2024 - SBDD XXVIII

cultuurcentrum Hasselt, Hasselt, Belgium

February 28 - March 1, 2024

Welcome to the 28th Hasselt Diamond Workshop!

The 28th 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 XXVIII programme is focussed on diamond surfaces and interfaces 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 XXVIII is aiming at providing a forum where fundamental as well as application driven viewpoints can be discussed at the highest level.
