Abstract

The importance of thorough material characterization in CVD diamond research is excellently expressed by R.C. DeVries in his 1987 review of metastable diamond formation1: “Man-made diamond synthesis may yet be pushed back in time when a careful study is given to the soots from ancient cave walls”. Nowadays such careful studies are possible and one of the major differences between the early days2–5 of diamond CVD and the modern era6–10 of low pressure diamond synthesis is probably the easy access to highly sophisticated, fast and extremely sensitive analytical tools to distinguish diamond from any other form of carbon as well as to determine the physical and chemical properties of the deposited material. In their 1968 paper, J. Angus and coworkers describe in detail the many tedious methods, including weight determination, visual inspection, traditional chemical analysis, chemical etching, density measurements, x-ray and electron diffraction, they applied. Their task was particularly difficult because they had to analyze diamond deposited onto diamond seeds. On the other hand, it is necessary to decisively characterize the deposited material, not only to distinguish it from other carbon modifications, but also to adjust the preparation conditions in order to tailor the properties of the diamond film to specific applications.
