GREEN DIADEMA “GREEN DIAmond DEtector production MAchine”

A project born from the collaboration between OMICA Srl and the DiaTHEMA Lab of CNR-ISM. The goal is to create a green and smart system for the production of multispectral electro-optical diamond devices to be used for the detection of ultraviolet radiation, below 300 nm and at very low intensity, in a space environment. These devices can be utilized both for Earth observation and space missions.

The GREEN DIADEMA project no. A0613-2023-078454 is born from the collaboration between OMICA Srl (project leader) and the DiaTHEMA Lab of CNR-ISM for the production of diamond in UV radiation detection applications.

Daniele M. Trucchi will coordinate the activities of CNR-ISM, while Marco Girolami will manage WP4, focused on the characterization of the developed CVD synthetic diamond.

Given its characteristics, the project falls into two fields:

  • AEROSPACE - development of space technologies and sensors for Earth Observation (SAR, multi/hyperspectral, Optical) with single satellite missions, constellations, and/or fractionated/federated systems in LEO/GEO.
    With the GREEN DIADEMA prototype system, it will be possible to create electro-optical devices operating in the deep ultraviolet with spectral sensitivity characteristics far superior to those currently available with existing technologies. This will enable the production of new-generation optical devices with higher performance, opening new frontiers for discoveries and applications.
  • AERONAUTICS - development of innovative production techniques.
    The GREEN DIADEMA system is an innovative production system for devices whose supply currently depends solely on non-EU countries. Diamond devices, in addition to space applications, can also find applications in the aeronautical field, such as the production of high-precision machinery and aerospace optical devices.
