Paper Abstract

Measurements of CH3 have been made using resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) in two different diamond growth environments. Spatial profiles of methyl above the substrate have been measured in a filament- assisted reactor, which show that the CH3 concentration is depleted near the substrate. The CH3 concentration at the substrate shows an approximate Arrhenius dependence on substrate temperature below 1000 K, characterized by an activation energy of 4 kcal/mole. Methyl measurements were also made in 35 Torr hydrogen/oxygen flame into which methane is injected near the substrate. Radial profiles of methyl, acquired using REMPI, and of CH4, acquired using sampling mass spectroscopy, are in good qualitative agreement with the results of numerical simulations.
