Abstract

The thermal conductivity of single-crystal diamond has recently received increased attention resulting from an announcement by General Electric of a 50% enhancement in the thermal conductivity of synthetic diamond of high isotopic purity[1] at room temperature. This increase was unexpected by standard theory. Thermal conductivity measurements on natural diamond between 500 and 1200K, and on synthetic, nearly isotopically pure (0.07% 13 C) diamond between 170 and 320K are reported here. The large temperature range allows a more accurate determination of the isotope effect than previously possible[1,2].
