Paper Abstract

The atomic structure of twin quintuplets in a chemical vapor deposited (CVD) diamond film was investigated by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). We conclude that the twin quintuplets have two main morphologies. The first consists of four =3 twin boundaries and one =81 twin boundary. The =81 twin boundary contains the dislocations needed to accommodate a 7.35° misfit angle between a set of {1 1 1} planes on opposite sides of the boundary. In the second case, the 7.35° misfit angle is accommodated by two or more grain boundaries that are tilted slightly more than the 70.53° tilt of a =3 boundary. These grain boundaries and the conventional diamond lattice twin boundaries are the only types of boundaries that we have observed in CVD diamond.
