A novel thermal ink jet heater based on diamond is presented. In contrast to the conventional actuator systems passivation layers are not necessary. This reduces the manufacturing cost and increases the thermal efficiency of the micro heater. In addition, the excellent mechanical properties of diamond guarantee protection against cavitation damages. In this paper the theoretical and experimental development process from first ideas up to the final prototype of the diamond ink jet is described. The new thermal ink jet heater has been tested successfully and its advantages are demonstrated by experiments using high speed cinematography.
