Low temperature mechanical properties of nanocrystalline diamond films

Measurements of the mechanical properties - internal friction and shear modulus - of several nanocrystalline diamond films grown on silicon resonator substrates is reported. The internal friction measurements of 0.5 mum boron-doped and boron-free nanocrystalline diamond films show that the boron concentration does not appear to be correlated with the… CONTINUE READING
