Areas of expertise I am a member of the CVD Diamond Lab based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, UK. In this lab we study the growth of films of diamond, diamondlike carbon (DLC) amorphous carbon (a-C), and other related materials, using various chemical vapour deposition techniques. As well as depositing and characterising the films for electrical and mechanical properties, we specialise in gas phase diagnostics using a variety of spectroscopic methods, including optical emission spectroscopy, cavity ring-down laser spectroscopy, and in situ mass spectrometry.
