Since the pioneering work of Derjaguin1, the development of various processes of diamond thin film deposition under subatmospheric pressure and relatively low temperature has been impressive. The state of the art has been reviewed 2, 3, 4. Our experience is in the process of hot filament assisted CVD5. Here are discussed some kinetic aspects of the results of a parametric study carried out by our group6, 7.
