Quotes

Stuttgart’s Andreas Voss, the project's principal investigator, said in an Element Six release: "The low-loss single crystal CVD diamond material produced by Element Six offers a unique combination of properties — including the highest room temperature thermal conductivity of any bulk material — allowing it to be used as a transparent heat spreader inside the resonator of high-power thin-disk lasers, generating heat flow densities that cannot be handled with other materials.”"
...by an unexpectedly simple mechanism: Each excited pair – whether it be a G-C or an A-T pair – decays into the ground state in a concerted manner. "Thus, the Watson-Crick base-pairing mechanism itself controls the dissipation of the absorbed UV energy. This contradicts the conventional wisdom, which holds that the base sequence within the same strand is responsible for the deactivation of excited states" says Wolfgang Zinth
...the systems to operate at higher powers with improved beam quality," said Adrian Wilson, director of the technologies group at Element Six. "For Ti:sapphire thin-disk, we have been called upon to further improve our existing crystal CVD diamond, extracting additional value—and we are determined to meet expectations."
"The American Academy of Ophthalmology's primary mission is to provide high-quality educational experiences to advance our profession" said David W Parke II
