Pixel detectors using synthetic diamond are an attractive alternative to silicon for use in radiation harsh environments such as at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Recent test beam results using Compact Muon Solenoid pixel readout electronics are presented, which demonstrate a hit efficiency of 95% and position resolution of 31 μm for a diamond pixel sensor with 125 × 125 μm2 pitch.
