Paper Abstract

Diamond has many properties that make it a promising candidate for demanding optical applications. Recently, it has become possible to grow polycrystalline diamond films at relatively low temperature and pressure using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques with growth rates exceeding 50 μm per hour. This development may make diamond optical elements economically feasible. Unfortunately, CVD diamond films are rough on optical length scales, which causes considerable surface scattering. The surface roughness must be eliminated before meaningful optical measurements can be performed.
