Diamond, nature’s extreme material, is renowned for its incomparable properties such as exceptional hardness, high stiffness, low friction, biocompatibility and outstanding thermal conductivity — just to name a few. For decades designers and engineers have sought to harness the attributes of diamond for a variety of engineering uses, but until now diamond has been notoriously difficult to work with, prohibitively expensive and without a reliable supply. Advanced Diamond Technologies (ADT), the world leader in developing and applying diamond films for electronic, mechanical, industrial and biomedical applications, offers several families of high-performance products that exploit the unsurpassed characteristics of diamond.
Leveraging research originally funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, ADT’s 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.
Advanced Diamond Technologies is committed to providing the unparalleled attributes of diamond to the Semiconductor, Microscopy, Electrochemical, and Biomedical markets and has developed a roadmap and portfolio of technology leading monolithic diamond probes which enable next generation applications.
NaDiaProbes deliver exceptional value in long life, high precision, and new usage models unavailable from conventional Si or SiN probes. The ADT process delivers wafer scale production and economically attractive pricing for high volume applications.

New CDI FN Series a new series of CNT probes at a new low price.
CDI FN Series Carbon Nanotube probes capture all the advantages of a CNT tipped probe with no compromises. Extremely high aspect ratios (up to 20:1) Exceptionally long wear (up to 200x longer than silicon/SiN and 50x longer than High-Density, Diamond Like Carbon (HDC/DLC)) and the smallest ROC on the market for a High Aspect Ratio probe (1nm ROC).
Using a CDI patented process, the carbon nanotube AFM probe has been perfected. Straightened carbon nanotubes can deliver the radius of curvature needed for high resolution imaging combined with the tube structure necessary for high topography Imaging. All in a single probe with a useable lifetime up to 200x your standard probes.
Our IOPLAS-IITM ion-assisted deposition processes give us the flexibility to apply coatings at low temperatures for plastic fibers and other delicate substrates. We can also generate coatings with greater packing densities to handle very high laser damage thresholds. To add to these capabilities, Cascade Optical has also developed manufacturing processes to apply our coatings to; plastics, polymers, semi-conductors, lenses, mirrors, crystals, metals (even diamond-turned surfaces), and ceramics.
We offer quality products with high yields to lower our production costs. Additionally, we offer very short lead times: typically one to two weeks. Our engineering department can provide you with our design-for-manufacture expertise. In most cases we can get you on the right track in just one or two phone calls.
We do a good deal of innovative coating development to support our relationships with the research community of National Labs, Universities, and NASA related organizations.
