After particle fluences of $10^{16}\,{\rm protons/cm^2}$, diamond sensors are expected to achieve a higher signal to noise ratio than silicon. In order to use low grade polycrystalline diamonds as sensors, electrodes inside the diamond bulk, so called 3D electrodes, are produced. Typically, this kind of diamond material has a lower charge collection distance (CCD) than higher grade diamond, which results in a decreased signal amplitude. With 3D electrodes it is possible to achieve full charge collection even in samples with low CCDs by decoupling the spacing of the electrodes from the thickness of the diamond bulk. The electrodes are produced using a femtosecond laser, which changes the phase of the diamond material. The phase changed material is conductive and identified as nanocrystalline graphite using Raman spectroscopy. Due to a crater like structure of the channels on one side of the diamond, contacting of the channels is difficult. With the femtosecond laser setup conductive channels are produced at a laser power of $150\,{\rm mW}$ and a velocity of the diamond sample of $2$ - $10\,{\rm mm/s}$. de dc.contributor.coReferee Keil, Markus PD Dr. dc.subject.eng CVD diamond de dc.subject.eng radiation hard detector de dc.subject.eng 3D sensor de dc.identifier.urn urn:nbn:de:gbv:7-11858/00-1735-0000-0028-86C2-6-6 dc.affiliation.institute Fakultät für Physik de dc.identifier.ppn 847529215
