About this book

This book is in honor of the contribution of Professor Xin Jiang (Institute of Materials Engineering, University of Siegen, Germany) to diamond. The objective of this book is to familiarize readers with the scientific and engineering aspects of CVD diamond films and to provide experienced researchers, scientists, and engineers in academia and industry with the latest developments and achievements in this rapidly growing field. This 2nd edition consists of 14 chapters, providing an updated, systematic review of diamond research, ranging from its growth, and properties up to applications. The growth of single-crystalline and doped diamond films is included. The physical, chemical, and engineering properties of these films and diamond nanoparticles are discussed from theoretical and experimental aspects. The applications of various diamond films and nanoparticles in the fields of chemistry, biology, medicine, physics, and engineering are presented.

About the authors

Dr. Nianjun Yang is working as a senior scientist and the leader of the Nanomaterials group at the Institute of Materials Engineering, University of Siegen, Germany. He worked as the group leader of Biosensor team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) Germany from 2008 to 2014, as an invited researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Japan from 2006 to 2008 and as a postdoctoral researcher at New Mexico State University, USA from 2005 to 2006. He received his PhD from the University of Fukui, Japan in 2005. His current research interests cover CVD growth of carbon and related materials as well as their applications for electrochemistry, biointerfaces, and sustainable chemistry. He has published more than 130 papers in peer-reviewed journals, edited 1 book series, 4 books, contributed 10 book chapters, and delivered 40 invited talks and 60 oral presentations at international conferences. He has been a program member of Hasselt Diamond Workshop since 2013 and the International conference of Diamond and Related Materials since 2014 as well as Nanodiamond and New Carbon (NDNC) in 2016. He is a guest-editor of nine journals (e.g., Small, Nanoscale, ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, Carbon, Diamond and Related Materials, Electroanalysis, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, and Physica Status Solidi A ), and an advisory member of the journals of Diamond and Related Materials as well as Scientific Reports. He has organized various 10 times carbon-related symposia at E-MRS Spring and Fall Meetings.
