Anchored in technology licensed from Argonne National Laboratory, Advanced Diamond Technologies (ADT) harnesses the superlative properties of nature's perfect material by turning natural gas into diamond in a highly controlled, reproducible process for a variety of industrial, electronic and medical applications. UNCD®, ADT's brand of thin, smooth diamond, is known for its ability to be integrated with other materials. Comprised of diamond grains that can be as small as 2-5 nm in diametera billion-fold smaller in volume than traditional diamond filmsUNCD gives advantage to ordinary products while enabling a new class of diamond machines. ADT is to the forefront of thin, smooth diamond films development for electronics, biomedical, industrial, and environmental applications. Leveraging research originally funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, ADTs proprietary technology captures the properties of natural diamond in a nanocrystalline thin-film form known as UNCD®. Known for its ability to seamlessly integrate with other materials, UNCD is mirror-smooth. Since it is vapor deposited, UNCD can be used to bring the properties of diamond to existing products while enabling entirely new classes of high performance devices. Applications being explored include: * Diamond coated mechanical pump seal * Hermetic coatings for retinal prosthetic implants * MEMS (micro-electrical-mechanical systems) * NEMS (nano--electrical-mechanical systems) * Cold-cathode electron sources (which can be used in flat panel displays) * Anti-stiction coatings for MEMS devices * Biosensors. Jarvik Heart (ventricular assist devices) - itself an SBIR involved firm, in 2009 lcensed exclusive rights to use Advanced Diamond Technologies's diamond coatings on the blood-contacting surfaces of Jarvik heart pumps in development at the time. In April 2019, the Industrial Division of the firm was acquired by the John Crane company - a firm specializing in artificial lift equipment and services - a 6000 person operation that is s usbsuduary of the John Smith company.
