Black diamond: a new material for active electronic devices

Williams, Oliver Aneurin, Jackman, R. B., Nebel, C. and Foord, J. S. 2002. Black diamond: a new material for active electronic devices. Diamond and Related Materials 11 (3-6) , pp. 396-399. 10.1016/S0925-9635(02)00024-9

Hydrogen surface conductivity has been a controversial subject since its discovery. Initial plasma treatments on single crystal diamond and polycrystalline diamond have led to the widespread use of this material in active electronics. However, ‘black’ polycrystalline diamond, usually termed ‘thermal management grade’, shows carrier concentration and mobility values similar to both white polycrystalline diamond and single crystal material. However, black diamond can be grown considerably faster than white diamond and is thus much cheaper.
