Demands for energy, human health and the environment drive developments for new classes of innovative systems where carbon-based materials offer great potential to play a key role in making effective, economic applications. 

This presentation was part of the International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials (2-5 September, 2013), which presented the latest research achievements and applications of carbon and diamond-based materials and devices, with special attention towards electronic features and phenomena. In addition, tribology, hard coatings and hetero-systems combining for example AlGaN and diamond were also discussed.
