Element Six to present on Engineering Diamond for new laser applications at the 20th Anniversary of the University of Strathclyde's Institute of Photonics

SANTA CLARA, Calif., (Nov. 3, 2015)—Element Six, the world leader in synthetic diamond supermaterials and member of The De Beers Group of Companies, will be presenting a paper at the 20th Anniversary of the Institute of Photonics: A Celebration of Photonics on Wednesday, Nov. 4. Andrew Bennett, principal research scientist at Element Six, will present “Engineering Diamond for New Laser Applications.” As one of the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies coordinated activities, the 20th Anniversary of the Institute of Photonics, will feature world-leading experts presenting across a wide range of photonics research including diamond photonics, visible light communications, gallium nitride based lighting and optogenics. The event will be held at the Technology and Innovation Center of the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.

Session Title: “Engineering Diamond for New Laser Applications”

Date and Time: Wednesday, Nov. 4; 11:30 a.m. WET

Location: Room G1 1RD

As presented by Andrew Bennett, “Engineering Diamond for New Laser Applications,” will discuss the emerging applications of diamond in laser systems. He will review how high purity, microwave assisted chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes combine the properties of diamond to enable new applications. Bennett will also address recent progress achieved in partnership with the Institute of Photonics at Strathclyde and other development partners.

If you’re interested in speaking with Bennett at the conference to discuss the presentation or learn about the many extreme properties that make diamond an exceptional material for a multitude of applications, please contact Havas Formula at e6@formulapr.com to coordinate a meeting.
