Formation of detonation diamond layers on silicon by the aerosol method
- 44 Downloads
An aerosol method for deposition of nanometer-thick layers of detonation diamonds has been developed. Application of a suspension of deagglomerated diamond particles onto substrates from an aerosol provides deposition of small-size drops, with the ultrasonic spraying of the suspension precluding formation of secondary agglomerates of nanodiamond particles in the course of sample drying. The layers are promising for high-precision studies of the structure and chemical composition of the surface of isolated nanodiamond particles.
