Chemical Vapor Deposited (CVD) polycrystalline diamond has been proposed as a radiation-hard alternative to silicon in the extreme radiation levels occurring close to the interaction region ofthe Large Hadron Collider. Due to an intense research effort, reliable high-quality polycrystalline CVD diamond detectors, with up to 270 mm charge collection distance and good spatial uniformity, are now available. The most recent progress on the diamond quality, on the development ofdiamond trackers and on radiation hardness studies are presented and discussed.
