Contact person : Gauthier CHICOT, CEO –

Location: Grenoble, France

Year of creation: 2019

Type of technology:

DiamFab start-up proposes a synthetic diamond-based solution for the next generation of power electronics that will revolutionize the conversion of electrical energy.

Other possible applications of their technology:

Because of their high quality, DiamFab high added value diamond wafers can also be used for others applications such as:

  •  RF electronics
  • optoelectronics
  • high energy detectors
  • quantum sensors.

Disruptive innovation (s) :

Their innovation relies on the perfect control of diamond epitaxial layer growth in terms of doping and thickness. Especially, their unique know how allow them to grow diamond with a wide range of doping level and hence a wide range of conduction : going from insulator to metallic conduction passing by semi-conducting one.  Therefore they are able to propose electronic grade diamond wafers to fabricate electronic devices with outstanding performances compared to any other semi-conductor materials used today.

Experience and/or interest in financing their product development through publicly funded projects:

They don’t just develop a product, they participate to create a new sector.

To address the resulting challenges, they must surround theirselves with the players upstream and downstream of their technology. Thus the development of their product through collaborative projects financed by public aid seems to be the appropriate tool.
