Current-voltage characteristics (CVC) of synthetic semiconductor diamonds are presented. In certain low-resistance specimens at definite temperature intervals an N-type CVC is found. Investigations performed permit a qualitative explanation of the majority of CVC peculiarities, and determination of the boron acceptor impurity activation energy Ea = 0.36 eV.
