Paper Abstract

The growth of diamond particles using continuous transmission electron microscope (TEM) observation of a side-view of the sample was studied. Diamonds were synthesized using the DC plasma jet chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Synthesis was followed by TEM observation and this cycle was repeated. The shape of the diamond remained almost the same during growth and there were many small SiC particles on the Si surface. Analysis of this continuous observation suggested there was a thin (about 200 nm) gaseous layer containing CH4 radicals and SiH4 radicals. It appeared the SiC particles helped diamond particle growth on the Si substrate.
