The development of 3D Diamond detectors is raising interesting prospects for future Particle Physics experiments due to the increased radiation hardness resulting from a combination of a 3D geometry and the use of an inherently radiation hard material. As well as for medical applications due to the tissue equivalence of diamond.

Test beams have been performed on various 3D Diamond devices to study their performance using 4.5MeV and 120GeV protons. To understand the observed measurements, simulations have been carried out using Sentaurus TCAD and good agreement has been found between simulation and experimental data. Simulations have also been used to make predictions on what fabrication parameters and geometries would improve the performance of the devices.
