    Oh, it is definitely possible. Diamond is among the best thermal conductors known to man, and it is definately a semiconductor. Graphite, another form of carbon, looks like it is in the lead on this game though.

    I think they need to solve the problem of making large wafers before it's useful.
    The page is full of ads and a popup so don't click if you don't like that sort of thing. There isn't any real scientific information there.
