Characterization of Flame Grown Diamond Films by Luminescence and EPR


Flame grown diamond films, depending on the growth conditions may present various amounts of diamond like carbon (DLC) besides the diamond phase. A correlation of the morphology with the secondary electron emission, cathodoluminescence, photoluminescence, EPR and Raman data is presented for samples grown using in different ratios of oxygen and acetylene.
