Investigations on Diamond Thin Films as Implant Coating and Biosensing Platform
Diamond is researched in biological context for decades. Fundamental research has established diamond as a material that combines a pronounced compatibility with biological entities and resilience against even the harshest chemical and physical conditions. The present dissertation strives to improve the abilities of diamond in this matter even further by utilizing methods of nanostructuring and biochemical functionalization. Numerous characterization methods are used to monitor each step in detail and to evaluate the ...
Fabrication and characterization of diamond nanopillars, waveguides and AFM tips with incorporated color centers
Diamond is a unique material with outstanding properties and the perfect host for different crystal defects in its lattice, so-called color centers, which provide exceptional spin properties, rendering them a promising platform for the development of novel devices and components in quantum information technologies (QIT) and quantum sensing applications. To overcome diamond's high internal reflection due to its high refractive index, color centers need to be incorporated in photonic diamond structures, leading to ...
High temperature-stable InGaAs QDs for the monolithic integration in external-cavity surface-emitting lasers
Optically pumped vertical external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs), also called semiconductor disk lasers (SDLs), benefit from the flexibility and versatility of the semiconductor material. With a simple cavity layout, fundamental transverse mode operation with a circular output beam and high beam quality is possible. They have excellent heat-sink properties and only require inexpensive multimode diode lasers for pumping. The complete VECSEL structure is only a few micrometers thick which leads to a strong ...
