Diamond Seeding Equipment

pulverisor Electrospray kit

Pulverisor and ball-milling machine. This uses sealed stainless steel containers filled with diamond powder and steel ball-bearings. The containers are shaken rapidly for many hours, and the ball-bearings pulverise the diamond into nano-sized powder suitable for use as seeding.

Home-built electrospray system - for seeding 3D or delicate substrates. The nanodiamond suspension in the syringe is drawn into a spray by a p.d. of ~35 kV and accelerated onto the grounded substrate, where the particles stick and seed the surface conformally.

ultrasonic probe  

An ultrasonic probe - for dispersing and deaggregating nanodiamond suspensions.
