Diamond industry - challenge from Russian innovation

This paper presents technology foresight for diamonds as emerging materials for the next generation device to realize functional goals and operating conditions that were previously unattainable. Domestic diamond industry is characterized by the technological autonomy with high export potential.

Keywords: synthetic diamond, foresight, Russian industry, import independence, export potential.
