Panel discussions at the end of the Institute provided a forum for the lecturers and students to discuss the needs and opportunities for research and development in diamond and diamond-like materials technology. The key scientific needs are related to modeling of the nucleation and growth processes, to elucidation of the critical roles of atomic hydrogen, and to the mechanisms of carbon addition to the growing surfaces. The development and more extensive use of in situ diagnostics for both surface and gas phases are important to solving these issues. The more immediate practical questions concern the identification of the growth rate limiting steps, the relation of growth parameters to the resulting film structure and the dependence of properties on structure.
