  Heat sink is an essential component to nanoelectronics,   microelectronics, and optoelectronics applications because it   allows the thermal management of devices such as integrated   circuits (ICs), microelectromechanical systems (MEMSs), and   graphic unit processing. There are different materials being   employed for heat sink production. Among them, diamond has stood   out due to its excellent chemical and physical properties. This   book chapter focuses on the development, properties, and   applications of CVD diamond heat sinks. It covers the basic   concepts of heat conduction applied to CVD diamond as a heat sink   material and its production as freestanding CVD wafers of   polycrystalline CVD diamond, since the literature about this   topic is extensive, giving the reader a comprehensive overview.   We will comprise the use and potential widening of applications   of in CVD diamond heat sink technology, providing the reader with   a substantial background at the current development of solutions   and new frontiers in the practical use of CVD diamond thermal   management devices.
