The Materials Science Division of the U.S. Army Research Office Sponsored a one and one-half day workshop in June 1989 to review the status of diamond-related research in the U.S., and to identify Army system requirements that potentially could be met by this technology. Fourteen invited speakers provided an overview of diamond-related research in the U.S., and identified the particular applications where this technology could make a significant contribution to future Army missions. Applications that deserve increased attention include erosion-resistant broad-band missile domes and detector windows, corrosion-and tribological resistant coatings, thermal heat dissipating structures, and high-strength ceramicscomposites. Working discussions were then convened to determine whether there were specific recommendations which would promote the Armys implementation of this technology.
