THE potential for diverse applications of diamond1 has been enhanced by the discovery of the chemical vapour deposition process2,3 for film formation. The growth of hetero-epitaxial diamond films on silicon is a particularly attractive goal, but only polycrystalline films have so far been prepared in this way4. Because of the large lattice mismatch, thin intermediate layers (interlayers5) are formed between the diamond and silicon phases, which may contain crystalline SiC (refs 6, 7) or… CONTINUE READING
