Since 2005, Lambert Yeung, has been unearthing scientific possibilities in the world of carbon nanotubes and diamonds. The CEO of 6C Technology Limited is the mind behind the large-scale MPCVD (Microwave Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamond technology, a low-cost system that produces wafer-size high-quality diamonds, meeting the needs of diamond-based materials in the semiconductor and electronics industries. His process of synthesising diamond with semiconductor properties has also led to the development of an energy-efficient power electronic device. Previously, Yeung had also worked at the University of Illinois and Harvard University, discovering potential blood glucose biosensors with DNA-wrapped carbon nanotube, as well as developing a chemical vapor deposition technology for growing carbon nanotube and an atomic scale high-resolution magnetic field imager based on diamond nitrogen defects.
